I am bold. I am confident. I am strong. These are just a few of many affirmations cut into this piece. Body positivity and confidence is something I love to spread through wearables. This portfolio piece was created for my sustainable fashion course. In this course we learned how to use the Laser Printer. Our professor prompted us to create a wearable piece using the laser cut printer for an aspect of it. This piece sparked my love for the laser printer. I finished off this look with some hand embroidery and a red feather flare.
These are the Adobe illustrations I created for the sleeves and base part of the dress. I used these files for the laser printer.
