Here are two pages from my sketchbook for the Grace Kelly project. For these pages I looked at one of my favourite historical designers, Cristobal Balenciaga. Balenciaga was also one of Kelly's favourite designers.
After looking at the corset part of the dress on the photograph, I was inspired to create a piping sample. I think it turned out well. I also researched into Balenciaga’s signature cut; the Dolman Sleeve. I love this silhouette because it is so simple and has a youthful and modern shape.
