Menswear


Another look from last semester.

This was my first time working with menswear.

I created a layered look based on mid-1800s Mormonism. I wanted to include plaid in my design, as it is a fabric that was both popular and favored by Mormons at the time. I also wanted my look to reflect the
desire to dress for God and and to be ready for hard work and physical labor. I used red in my design because the color was banned in the Fundamental Mormon faith in the 1980s and I wanted my design to speak to an earlier time.

I knit the scarf myself -- the first knit thing I'd ever finished! And I heat-embossed a leather belt to say "Mighty & Strong" -- a classic Mormon phrase.

Hope you like it!
