I am a MA Fashion Designer who has previously done a Bachelor of Fashion Technology in India in 2016. This project is centred on upcycling bridal gowns. I chose this topic since the majority of couples do nothing more than store their bridal attire in their closets. I use a mix of seashell concepts and combine them with upcoming trends to make evening party wear and leftover material to create accessories as well.
I use my personal experience as well as my own unique style in my work, which helps my project come together with flair.
I purchased a bridal gown on Facebook Marketplace at the end of the second semester with the intention of starting a new life in it. I won’t squander any materials, as I plan to convert this gown for an evening party. I intend to develop more accessories for the product with the leftover resources. I wanted to grasp the procedures for upcycling bridal gowns properly in the second semester. The objective of this study is to conduct research and build strong foundations for a bridal upcycling industry that can satisfy customer demands and profit from the growing sector.
