This two piece costume features a high collared, sleeved bodice with a pleated bust panel. To compliment is a two tiered, lined skirt with piping detail. This costume was inspired by medieval armour and the plated shells (carapace) of various insects. The entire costume is constructed from Cotton/Poly blended sateen, and 3 different woven Jacquards. This was a collaborative project with Shauna Hess.
