This eveningwear collection is inspired by the lines of modern corsetry and undergarment structure.

The focus of this project was to integrate unconventional materials seamlessly into high-end evening wear garments.

Thus, lightweight silks and chiffon are mixed with wood panels of different thicknesses to both help to define the human form and expand upon it to create exaggerated silhouettes. 

Delivery 1 features 4in wide curved basswood panels, covered in ruched organza.

Delivery 2 features 2in wide curved basswood panels, used as boning.

Delivery 3 features .25in wide curved basswood panels, sewn into sheer georgette.
