COLOURS IN BLOOM
by Ilyssa Tobenstein
2 colours of satin fabric, tulle, recycled fabric in different colours and textures, gems, jewels, and other small flowers, 4 servo motors, microbit.
My project is a long skirt that, to me, represents spring. It is full of “blooming” flowers, and comes to life when the wearer puts it on and moves. There are 6 moving flowers total, as well as a satin panel on the front that turns. The moving parts are incorporated so that you don’t know which parts will move until you put it on and try it out.
