Nomadic Dress

Here is the first dress I designed and produced, in 2008, that incorporates elements of the three cultures I grew up in my household, which are Jordanian, Italian and British.  This gave me the opportunity to express the intertwining Fashion connection I have with my personal background.

The Jordanian influence I used was the antique silver Bedouin jewelry sewn on to the dress below.

I used the drapery and elegancy of the traditional Roman toga. I really wish the photograph was in higher quality and the dress on a mannequin! Oh well.

I created the foundation for this pattern by manipulating my initials and I used the famous British Plaid motif to complete it.
