My senior thesis collection is inspired by images of Antarctic glaciers. I used organza and elastic fabrics to make pleats and laces. In several looks, I made cutout openings, revealing the inner fabrics. I also made lace in a very special way by directly turning the edge of the cloth at the joint outward to form the lace, rather than adding additional lace elements. This effect helps convey the feeling of a natural formation like a glacier.
