During my Foundation Diploma in Art & Design last year I specialised in Fashion & Textiles. One of my first projects was in small groups and insect inspired. I researched a variety of bugs for inspiration to complete our 3 layered creation. We decided to not only explore the outer appearance, but the insides as well. The outer layer represented the hard, extremely structured scale-like, layered shell, followed by a simple skeleton-like structure, ending in the gentle soft tissue from beneath. I'd say the main source of inspiration for this design was a centipede, although not the most extravagant in appearance, the fact we explored beneath the surface gave our garment an edge. I was in charge of make-up but we also worked together as a team making the garment itself, we allocated different jobs to make the most of our time and resources.
