The theme of my FMP was deep sea creatures and the outcomes designed with high fashion stage wear for musicians in mind [think of the type of wearable art that Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's wears on stage]. I dyed my own fabrics or designed digital prints which were then cut up and manipulated, I used quilting, beading, embroidery and appliqué techniques and made everything myself... that's even me 'modelling' in the above photos! So it was a lot of work but I feel that it payed off in the end to create something very unique, fun and indelibly ME!
