The design and manufacture of the dress was inspired by the process of how the fabric is made. One of the early processes is to take the raw ingredients and split the fibres up into multi[ples, they are then brought back together in a different structure and arrangement to create the fabric. This was then used as a base for the design, taking a form of a dress, splitting it up and bringing it back together to create the overall piece.
