senior thesis: look #5

This is the fourth look in my collection of 8 for my senior thesis in fashion design at the University of Cincinnati. To find out more about the concept development and inspiration I took for this project, check out my posts here and here. The first post explains a bit about my concept for this collection, which I've named Linguistic Relativity. The second post goes a bit deeper into the concept and shows the charts I made based on research.

Without further ado, here is look #5. This is the only look that I really haven't started in final fabric, despite the critique being in 6 days. It's just taken a backseat to some of my more favorite designs, and I guess since my model wasn't around much it didn't motivate me to work on it. I'll likely start it tomorrow.
This dress has a corset style bodice, representative of the word "corset" being masculine in most languages, although being an extremely feminine garment. It has a "collar" and button down placket in the front, mimicking a men's shirt, flowing into an ombre chiffon skirt. The color palette derives from a word in Latin that means "watercolored" rather than a specific color.
