In this project, my team and I had to create a culture from scratch and design an entire outfit made from unconventional items. I took the lead and based the culture on consumerist society so that our garments would be made from any kind of plastic bag to ensure mobility and flexibility in the material. Each member was in charge of making one piece from each part of the body. I chose to design and construct the top. The design was meant to convey modesty through the neckline, while having power extenders on each arm to reaffirm authority and rank of the individual. To keep it sleek and simple I decided to use white garbage bags with a draw string and constructed the sleeves by layering them. It was a project to show how culture can directly influence the style of dress in a society.
