Design Description

Our design is called Minima and is inspired by the designer Zac Posen and how he celebrates femininity and elegance through his work. The theme behind our creation is that beauty lies within and the importance of being who you truly are. The many tiny parts to our design illustrates that appearance is only one insignificant piece of your true identity. The triangle cut-outs in the front of the dress and in the boots further enhance our theme of letting the true person shine through. We hope that our design can inspire other young people to place value in qualities other than appearance.

MATERIALS USED

Made from over 100,000 tiny Styrofoam beads, medical bandaging
and wired hangers.
