New York Fashion Week February 2009 Emily Melville and Ivanka Georgieva

Emily Melville, Fashion Design, and Ivanka Georgieva, Textile Design – Emily was born in Connecticut and raised in California and Virginia. She developed her silhouettes by draping wool fabric on a dress form to experiment three-dimensionally and used creative cutting techniques to construct unconventional shapes. Ivanka combined screen-print, dye, iron, and pigment discharge techniques to recreate the look of landscape paintings inspired by the work of artist Leslie Shows. Ivanka was born and raised in Pernik, Bulgaria.
