You're never fully dressed without a smile!

I was inspired by the springtime and Diane von Furstenberg’s designs for my own design. I was inspired by the prints that she uses and the silhouette of her wrap dresses. I wanted to use a floral print fabric. Once I found the perfect fabric, I knew that I wanted to design and create a romper. Although, a romper would be challenging for me, since I had never made shorts before and I am not great at sleeves. But, I knew that I could do it. As I stepped out of my comfort zone for this design I felt like my style grew. I hope that my design style keeps blooming.

We drew our inspiration from the ancient mesoamerican cultures. The features that caught our attention were their use of vibrant colors, geometric shapes, feathers, and the way they accentuate the female hips. Our garment is meant to interpret all these features through the use of the plastic strapping material as well as represent the tribal style of these cultures.
