The concept of this piece is meant to represent the pollution of our oceans. My goal was to bring awareness to the problem in hopes that others will do their part to keep our oceans clean. For the finished garment I incorporated actually trash and shells found on the beach along with other trash materials.
Illustrations, Flats, & Swatches
Our designs are inspired by the cultures of the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations. The patterns found on our fabrics are taken from different stone carving that depict animals and various gods. Other design concepts are inspired by the ceremonial war costumes such as the animal skin suits and the elaborate war shields found in the Codex Mendoza, as well as our color scheme. Our goal is to draw attention to these ancient rich cultures and encourage others to learn more.
