Valentino Replica

Wilson School of Design, 2018

For this project, I had to recreate a classic gown utilizing draping methods. I chose this Valentino dress from SS 2014. Valentino is a house of fashion that is known for their innovative unique gown designs. It was originally all hand embroidered, so to recreate the look, I made a custom print, added a little flare and got it digitally printed. The print had to be meticulously calculated, and puzzled together to match the measurements of a standard size 6 and achieve the unique surface design effect of the Valentino dress. See below for final look and some process. 

Some photos from the initial Valentino campaign served as mood inspiration, with colour inspiration and my updated repeat design.
