CRISIS CAPSU­LE 02:

05) Inside-out Over-sized Emerging/disappearing Structure Skirt                       

Skirt outline drawn onto one continuous piece of fabric, folded in half with hole cut for waist. Part unfinished, raw edged and using normally discarded fabric selvedge.

Classic short sleeve, soft-tailored dress up-scaled to one size fits all proportion, for universal wear-ability.

The stages of collapse and interplay of panels and parts allow for multiple variations of wear, giving each dress several identities.
