This is my winning entry in the Fashiondag design contest sponsored by NDC Mediagroep. The winning entries are being shown at the Wonen & Co. lifestyle market from 16-19 March, 2017.
This image shows the front and side views of the top made from laser-cut, leather sourced from a vintage men's winter coat. The pattern for the top as well as the laser cutting design were first developed in Adobe Illustrator and is inspired by cast iron fencing, corsets and enlarged lace motifs. Virtually all of the materials are recycled or vintage except for notions like thread, zipper and cording. The buttons are antique jet from circa 1910.
