Alice's adventures in wonderland.

Alice's adventures in wonderland.

FAS6134 Independent practice.

This project started with my interest in the book Alice in wonderland, with so many adaptations of the book already, I wanted to create my own. With two collaborations one with BCU's Exhibition technician and another with an illustration student focusing on stop motion my project developed into more than just two garments but the opportunity to create an immersive exhibition space through my garments and a stop motion animation allowing me to tell my version of Alice's adventures.

I started my research with 18th-century french fashion which gradually developed into researching into modern high-end fashion designers that had designs influenced by historical silhouettes, doing this allowed me to have more freedom with my designs and not be held back by historical standards. I focused on making my garments bespoke and to a high standard, instead of focusing on textiles and other aspects, this allowed me to further my skills in pattern cutting/sewing a place i felt i had the weakest knowledge of.
