Shape Project for APD 242

Well I really LOVE sweets so I decided to use that as my inspiration for the project. I found pictures of my favorite sweets then found some new Spring '10 runway looks from Giles and Alexander McQueen and compared the shapes. As you can see I also incorporated colors, but mainly focused on similar shapes. I thought the comparison in color would help assist in the whole overall aestetic experience.

The shape of the Giles dress really resembles the shape of a Gummy Bear.

This Giles dress resembles the shape of a short piece of Bubble Tape.

This Giles dress really looks like and upside down icecream cone.

This Alexander McQueen looks resemples a lollipop with the models legs resembling a lollipop stick.

The sleeves on this Giles jacket really resemble a twisted wrapper of a candy.

The shape of this Giles skirt is very similar to a Little Debbie cake.

This Alexander McQueen blouse is very unique and resembles the same shape as a marshmallow.

The skirt on this Giles look is very similar to the top shape of a cupcake.

This dress by Giles really has the same shpe as a piece of chocolate from a candy bar.

This Giles suit resembles a long piece of licorice.

I cannot get my Britney Spears' pics up i really have no idea why. But here is some sketches of the costumes she and her dancers wore. Like I said before her stage costumes were so amazing and entricate. The costumes for the tour were designed by Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 based in Canada. They did a fabulous job!! Here are some background information about the designing duo. Dean and Dan Caten are identical twins who were born Dean and Dan Catenacci in 1965 in Toronto Ontario. In 1983 the brothers moved to New York and attended Parsons The New School of Design. However they only stayed a semester and returned to Canada. They launched their first womenswear collection, DEanDAN in 1986. In 1988 they signed to Ports International (Ports 1961.) In 1991 they worked at the house of Versace. In 2003 they launched their own personal womens' collection.

Stella McCartney 2010

I loved Stella McCartney's Spring 2010 collection! One word to describe the collection would be minimal. Stella's collection clearly displays that simple sofistication is quite beautiful and stylish. It had a very deconstructed yet sophisticated feel to it. Her pieces were very tailored with feminine touches such as ruffles. Here are a few pieces I really loved.
