For my FMP, I have focused the theme of Bram Stoker's Dracula and the three characters of the 'The Brides'. I have altered the context by changing the setting to fit the 1920's and reimagined the theme to suit a theatre production.
When designing the costumes, I took inspiration from 1920's evening wear, embellishment, and show girl attire, particularly within the headdresses. To create each piece, I demonstrated a range of techniques such as hand dyeing, devore, foiling, and beading as well as millinery techniques including blocking and trimming.
Within this project, I was able to expand upon existing techniques acquired from previous projects regarding various construction and embellishment processes.
