Illustrated Gown details

I initially had the idea of adding some hand illustrated details to the neoprene skirt that I made, and tested different pens on fabric to see what kind of effects were created. I liked the idea of creating simple black line drawings on white/off white fabrics, but I have decided to leave the skirt without the drawings, as I think the piece is better off being a simple, minimalistic yet voluptuous gown.

I looked at the dress worn by Angelina Jolie, designed by Donatella Versace. The piece was constructed in white satin but drawn on by Angelina’s children, adding a very personal and cute touch. I like the idea of using my own family wedding photos and incorporating these onto fabric, but I think I will keep my skirt plain and create a sample or another piece that shows my hand drawn work.
