Cotton First

Won best in show in the Cotton First Design Exhibition and Fashion Show of 2012.

The purpose of the show was to bring greater awareness about the benefits of Cotton for Fashions in everyday life and share that understanding with the community. Also to bring awareness of the design capabilities of students from the College of Textiles to the community at large.

All three garments were made of 100% cotton. My inspiration came from the raw natural beauty of cotton and to show cotton in its different forms in its process from raw cotton on a plant to yarn.
