Project Rundle - Renaissance Arcade
We chatted with third year fashion design student Jasmine on creating a garment inspired by Renaissance Arcade for Project Rundle.
Which Adelaide laneway were you given for Project Rundle?
My laneway was Renaissance Arcade.
Describe your garment and how the laneway influenced the design? What was your inspiration?
My garment was influenced by the hexagonal cut-outs in the ceiling of Renaissance arcade and also the lights in the middle of the cut-outs. My garment compromises a lot of structure and to formulate this appearance I added in a lot of panel lines and a cut out feature on the side of the torso. Also there are pleats to show the dimension of buildings popping out from behind each other.
Tell us about the highlights and challenges of Project Rundle.
The biggest challenge was initially I wanted to use an upholstery fabric for the pleats; however the fall wouldn't have sat right and would've pulled the garment. The rest was pretty cruisey and the highlight was having Spotlight give us a voucher to fund the fabric!
Parades will take place on Friday 25 March at 12pm, 1:30pm, 5:30pm and 7pm and on Saturday 26 March at 12pm, 1pm and 2pm at the Gawler Place canopy.
