Fifth Third Bank Dress

Fifth third bank was one of the main sponsors for Charlotte Fashion Week 2014. The event and fundraiser were held at Mercedes-Benz of Northlake.
I was one of the three designers asked to create a unique design from old materials from the bank.
·         tablecloths
·         t-shirts
·         gift bags
·         stickers
·         faux money
·         folders with logos
·         plastic straws
·         paper bags
·         styrofoam
·         colored paper

I found my inspiration from traditional Filipino dresses but I wanted to put a spin on the “traditional” aspect.  I wanted to add a sexy, yet elegant, look. I wanted to create an off the shoulder look and gloves to compliment the entirety of the dress. Eventually, I hand crafted a matching earring and necklace set to finalize the look.

My model, Genevieve M. Cordery, did an amazing job on the runway that evening. She did her own make-up and her hair was done by Paul Mitchell School. Her walk earned her the Charlotte Fashion Week 2014 Model of the Year award.
