Emotions Through Seasons

This FMP is a collaboration with Rosie Red Corsetry & Couture. I have always been interested in bridalwear and corseting but hadn’t gotten the chance to try it. Rosie has a lot of experience with both and works with brides of all sizes, it would have been very valuable to learn from her.
I have enjoyed working with colour through my previous projects, so I wanted to include that within this project, deciding to do alternative bridalwear. Therefore, I used Marissa Recker’s abstract art as a base for my inspiration.
The concept is Emotions Through Seasons, it came from an interview I did with Marissa when explained how she uses the seasons to help with her colour selections and since it’s abstract, her emotions and state of mind always influences what the art looks like. I looked at how emotions and mindsets can be influenced by the seasons, for example how its brighter and flowers start to bloom in spring hence people associate it with time for a new chapter and growth. I designed for all the seasons separately using influences from the emotions and mindset that come with each season and flowers that bloom in that season that have similar symbolism to the state of mind.
