My design style is often very colourful with influences from sportswear. This particular outfit pulls inspiration from African art, drawing out the block colours and vibrance. I choose to use a jersey fabric to reflect movement and activeness, with the silver bias binding giving a reflecting quality. The over exaggerated length of the sleeves and gathered sides gives the garment some drama. The gathered sided also making the garment more feminine and reveal a little skin, giving a hint of sexiness.
