Hey Everybody! So this time around, I decided to revamp the miniature garbage bag I created in the previous post, based off of the tips I was given during the critique from my peers. I was asked to specifically, make the trash bag somewhat transparent so that people could tell what is inside them, and in addition I was told that I should scale up the size of the bag. In the attachment below, I have posted photographs of my previous object and the updated one; as well as notes I was given from one of my peers from the critique for comparison purposes. The new bag was made with a sheer gray material and plastic wrap panels so that people could see what is actually in the bag. The fabric panels have my dreams and/or memories drawn in black india ink on them, it is gathered together at the top and a strap is sewn in to resemble a trash bag. Stuffed inside the bag are my dreams and/or memories in written form on paper, that have been shredded apart and crumpled into smaller pieces to resemble waste I no longer need in my life.
Hello, My name is Megan Taylor, I am a returning student here at Parsons; my major is Fashion Design with a peaking interest in environmentalism and animal welfare; I hope to transform the industry someday...slowly but surely. My wish is to combine luxury and aesthetic appeal with the consciousness of how and where it is made along with the idea of what to do with it after use. I have been following my need to create and share with the world art and fashion since the tender age of eleven years old.
