fash·ion de·sign:n.A graphic representation, especially a detailed plan for construction or manufacture of the prevailing style of dress.
The insect and arachnid worlds present a wide variety of texture, color, and pattern, exemplified by the exquisite wings of a butterfly to the haunting luminescence of beetles. This year’s Fashion problem is to create an evening wear fashion inspired by insects or arachnids of your choosing.
Create one original evening wear fashion/outfit that has been inspired by an insect or arachnid. Research the world of insects and arachnids. Select one or more insects, unique in pattern, design, texture and color. Consider incorporating some insect features such as wings, antenna, and other various appendages. Research historical and contemporary fashion sources. The presentation and modeling of your entry is limited to 60 seconds total, including the reading of a script and/or the playing of music, and serves as the spontaneous problem for the fashion category. All garments must be made from paper products. Paper products being used that were found in the trash or recycled should be dry, relatively “clean” and odorless. Fasteners and surface adornments may be made of other materials but should not assist in the overall construction of the garment. (Garments using non-paper products for the primary construction will be disqualified–this includes the use of duct tape or similar fabric-based tape products.)
