PROJECTS

Clothing collection - Bird

The visual image and cut of the clothing collection "Bird" was inspired by the similarity and interaction of several types of clothing in the history of fashion, they are apron and dress, as well as their close connection with the trends of modern dress models. A woman in the office wants to dress feminine and comfortable. The black fabric ensures the multifunctional use of the clothing. The classic semi-fitting silhouette highlights a woman's figure and posture, highlighting femininity and elegance. When women go outside the work environment, accessories are added to the clothes, which gives a mysteriously romantic mood, emphasizing the woman's ideal X-shaped silhouette. 3D printed patterns and tulle fabrics give the costume a touch of light and a unique design.
