Entry Description

This collection was inspired by the external structures, textures, colors, sizes, and layers of a small organism; fungus, found in nature. We sometimes neglect the beauty what mother nature brings into this world; So we want to emphasize those details into our pieces and bring it to live.

One of our objective was to play with different textured fabrics to give the desire result to our garments such as light and heavy weight fabrics, and to better illustrate what our thesis is about. Also, pleats were incorporated to the collection to represent the gilled mushrooms.
