Claudia and I wanted to root the design in layers. We started the process talking about trees and roots, and moved to a more classical idea. Every time we spoke the design became clearer and cleaner. Simple to the viewer with layers of symbolism behind it. We chose to use a grey base in contrast to the flesh mesh to show form and shape.
After seeing the piece in rehearsal we decided to simplify the design and make a clean shift dress.
