The Chinese are intricately woven into Melbourne's history beginning from the gold rush and continuing today. With that in mind, I've designed an Eastern-Edwardian evening gown using the distinct 1900s silhouette highlighted with Chinese silks.
The ensemble consists of a taffeta drawstring cloak, a sheer blouse with a Mandarin collar and bishop sleeves, and a trailing skirt with lace overlay.
It seems a little daunting, but since I graduated I have no classes or other projects to take up my time! Luckily enough, since this shall be rather time consuming!
Wish me luck!
