Process: Dress

As the dress will sag once filled with water, Galina suggested making a strap to hold it in place. Hence, I used leftover plastic to create a wavy strap that mimics the movement of flowing water. In fact, the other plastic pieces are created by cutting from leftover plastics or by fusing smaller pieces of plastics together. This is in line with my sustainable ethos for this project. The straps are sewn to the front and back while the base for the cones and the tail can be fastened with velcro.

covered the cones with plastic fusing by using hot glue so the plastics wouldn’t warp yet keeps its shape
