Galliano Inspired Ballet Costume

When designing this ballet costume, I took influences from fashion designer, John Galliano. Galliano often takes inspiration from animal products so I used leather for the corset and incorporated handmade feathers in the tutu. The centre panel of the corset was constructed by felting woollen threads into denim using an embellishing machine and I created the tutu using netting and handmade feather made from boning and scrap fabric.
