Coutured Trash

Using couturier Stéphane Rolland as my inspiration, I wanted to create a garment that reflected his classic and simple silhouettes and his modern lines and asymmetry. With a nod to his 2012 Fall/Winter collection, I constructed a garment that had architectural elements as well as a soft side. I used magazine pages to create the definite lines of the structured side of the garment and I used pleated plastic bags to create the flowing drape of the other half of the garment. I also incorporated a metallic belt, made from the foil of a chip bag, to reference the belts and accessories that so often complement Rolland’s designs.
