Rocks, minerals and crystals inspired my concept : i wanted to essentially convey a cohesive design that was made up of two sections architectural lines and angles vs soft drapery. Throughout my six designs i have maintained this aesthetic, but slightly altered cutouts, embellishments and the placement of drapery - most of the bodices i have designed are padded cups, with an aim to create crystal-like structures. This design aesthetic conveys an idealized representation of the female form as an object of desire, which then also relates to the diamond as a symbol of femininity. In keeping with this natural aesthetic and curves of the female form - drapery conflicts with this geometric and angular idea of the natural - i.e. rocks & minerals being manipulated and morphed into objects of beauty.
