Carapace – (portfolio mini-collection)
This mini collection consists of 5 individual costumes inspired by an original storyline by Geoffrey Davis. Entitled ‘Carapace’, it’s the transformation of the human race into a new genetically mutated, human/insect species. Materials used to construct these pieces include automobile vinyl, shot and metallic organza, and shot taffeta. All fabrics of this collection were treated with black-light reactive paint, to cast an eerie glow once exposed to black-light. Original design, patterns and construction by Geoffrey Davis.
