round 1

Last month, in preparation for my Fall collection, I began the first in a series of custom fabric treatments I plan to integrate into my looks over the course of the next several months, involving various chemicals, dyes, weaving, and sewing techniques. In correlation with my color scheme it made sense to start with a bleach treatment on black cotton, and 3 gallons of bleach, 16 yards of fabric and 2 very dry hands later... the results were AMAZING. A striking skeletal pattern with teal accents that simultaneously reminds me of an x-ray and the cover of Alien 3.

You can see a couple of the finished garments HERE.

Now I'm ready for round 2, which will include both a dying and weaving project. SUPER excited to get started.
