I'm playing Project Runway today. I have a big show coming and it's what I've been thinking all about lately. The theme I should interpret is "futuristic/underwater." I went around Divisoria sourcing for fabrics and faux leathers the other day and I was lucky enough to find this honeycomb print which I think looks like a futuristic tortoise shell. I started the design process with scuba suit in mind. I'm also keen on using this reptilian pleather for some out-of-this-world effect. I'm really bad in sketching, I mean i can draw figures but not good enough for a presentation so I summoned the help of Photoshop to come up with a better rendition.
I also have another set of idea in mind. I got inspired from this colorful python pleathers and the idea of combining them with colorful rubber/plastics. The swatches of silk chiffon creates a nice contrast against the synthetic materials.
I'm so excited to start with this project already.
