For Shanna's creative draping project, she chose a dress from a chewing gum advertisement, the original of which was definitely a Photoshop creation--the model wore a dress with a parasol canopy for a skirt. Shanna's challenge was to make the artist's vision a reality. Because she had assisted me multiple times with altered parasol canopy forms and done her own explorations in that area, she was prepared to rise to the occasion!
Here's a picture of the understructure of the skirt:
Amazing, isn't it?
The whole effect reminds me a bit of Alice falling down the rabit hole, her skirt opening up like an umbrella.
