As I am a Fine Art student from Liverpool I like to experiment with many things and Eco Fashion is one of my experimentation I exploring at the moment but still carrying on with my other social theme's. I got this idea to explore Eco Fashion because I am starting a beginners sewing course in September to learn how to use my sewing machine, I have learned the basics when I was in school and college and when it comes to using my own sewing machine it turns into rocket science, so this course will be really helpful. Also because my current studio practice in university is about the poverty driven side of Liverpool etc, council estates. So I put both of them together and came up with Eco Fashion as a theme. I researched a bit about Eco Fashion and looked designers and they really inspired me. at the moment I am only doing drawings of my ideas because I don't think it is an appropriate theme for my studio practice but is something I want to explore in my spare time.

Fashion Sculpture Design #1 - Picket Fence - Lyndsey

(This whole piece is designed and owned by me Lyndsey Morgan with all rights.)

This is my first design I have produced based on Eco Fashion. I myself I done a good job considering I went into this subject knowing very little about Eco friendly. I started of with a corset that would replicate a picket fence and that would open mid way to the side with some sort of latch to replicate a gate hinge. The next part is the shoulders, I have designed it so there is branches/trees that only go over the shoulders too look like shoulder caps or straps so it would reference a garden. The final part is the skirt that I have tried to section into two parts by using layers. On one side used roses to stay with the garden theme as well as the leaves, both of them together compliment each other.
