The “Power of Pleats” is inspired by the crisp structured lines seen in architecture and is a complete look that is high fashion and sleek with a futuristic edge. Influenced by the prominent lines seen in city buildings, the design seeks to achieve a unique shape and proportion that diverges from traditional silhouettes seen in womenswear.a piece that has a three-dimensional feel through ‘exaggerated proportions and swooping angles and particular attention to construction and shapes.’ (Stewart, 2017)

The concept is made up of 3 fashion forward items. Through the incorporation of a structured mini skirt and detachable overskirt with strong layered pleating it creates repetition and experiments with proportion. I have paired this with a cropped slim fit tank style t-shirt that has the same pleating along the arm holes as well as along the back of the top, adding texture and enhancing innovation. As a whole the design highlights the female silhouette and is a functional fashion item which can be worn in a range of ways. Pleating and asymmetrical lines are current trends included in the design to adhere to features seen in fashion today.

The innovative fabrics used such as the deep grey metallic satin taffeta and the cotton elastane blend fabric collaborate in order to achieve a cohesive and futuristic look.​

The design is multipurpose and can be worn as a mini skirt with or without the overskirt, making it a sustainable piece of fashion that can be styled in different varieties for any occasion. This look is targeted towards the next generation and women between 16-23 who want a stylish statement piece in their wardrobe. The look is high class and could be seen in retailers such as Parlour X and Revolve.
