Hula Hoop Weave

I decided that I wanted to create one garment that had a base of weave inspired by Viktor and Rolfs’ weave work.

With these inspirations in mind, and looking back at my own illustrations I wanted to make a warp for my weave that wasn’t so literal; I decided that I wanted to make a dress out of a choker and a hula hoop as a base for my warp. I made a wire choker and wrapped it in tape, wading and white cotton and I wrapped the hula hoop in white cotton to match the choker. I decided that my warp would be out of fishing wire to create a stronger loom, but also so that a colour wouldn’t take away from the weave effect.

I think that this piece will be really successful when I have completed it and it will definitely be a WOW garment. I now need to source fabric for this garment.
