This design is my original creation, which I made from $75 worth of clothing from Goodwill, including the model's headpiece. I also crocheted the Obi sash as well as the flower necklace. The theme was "Around the World" and my inspiration was Japanese traditional folk styles mixed into Harajuku street styles. This garment was fully executed within a five week period of time and was part of the Goodwill Glitter Gala Design Competition at The Art Institute of Seattle in May 2012. It did not place, but I am still super proud of all the work I did on it and the skills that I acquired working on this design.
