Whatever the weather, artists for centuries have been inspired to make art in response to it. Art, fashion, and photography throughout history, have revolutionised the way we think about politics, environmental/social issues, culture and even art itself. In the 21st century we are bombarded, through the media, by a constant stream of news, flipping from the personal to the global in seconds. This information often presents us with serious issues surrounding the weather and environment and this is what L3 YR1 have responded to.
I created a dress inspired by the industrial revolution that links with my project theme of pollution. I was heavily inspired by the design of old Victorian garments and the designers Victor and Rolf. I used multiple techniques I learnt throughout this project e.g., rust printing.
