About the design
This project was mainly intended to build up more knowledge about fabrics, but also about drawing patterns.
Therefor, I drew out a pattern for both designs.
For the first design I chose to use leaves from the ash tree and glued them together forming a layered pattern on the dress.
For the second design I made a mix of decoupage glue and feathers.
Elektra is a Greek legend, Elektra is the daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, who saved the life of her young brother Orestes by sending him away when their father was murdered. When he later returned, she helped him to slay their mother and their mother's lover, Aegisthus.
