Salute, Ashley Casto 2014 University of Hawaii at Manoa

Salute, Ashley Casto

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The purpose of my design was to create a modern military look with gold accents. So I have combined structured designs with feminine touches. I want to show that women can be anyone that they want to be as long as they put their minds to it. By creating a box pleated crop top with eyelet and bamboo string closer in the back. I pared it with gold polyester shorts and a leather belt attached to a faux leather lap skirt. To give it a A-line structured illusion to look like the lap skirt is wrapping around her leg.
