After finally deciding on the basic design of the main garment in my fashion film - the ‘cocktail’ dress - I’ve started to prototype small swatches to develop the method of construction. In the above samples I used a strong adhesive normally used for adhering vinyl patches to holes in vinyl fabrics. I found that this was relatively successful when I placed a cocktail and orange slice in it, however, I don’t think the glue is particularly strong, and it looks quite messy also.
