Costume presented at Montana world of Wearable art- WOW Art Awards show in the year 2010. The costume is made of cotton, felt, chiffon and foam.
Inspired by the closeness and the unique experience the twins share, I designed a costume that fits two models at the same time.
They are so identical and share so much together that their closeness having the potential to either bring them together or separate them as far as possible.

My work is all about inspiration- it's what I observe around, what I feel about it and what I can do with it. Working with layers of foam and fabric to give it a structured look was not an easy task, a lot of patience was required to hand stitch the layers together. It took almost 20 days to just stitch the skirt with many many redos.
The costume gave me an opportunity to be innovative and original, while not being bound by the constraints of commercialism. I love creating drama in my costumes, and the design helped me experiment with silhouettes and material.
In the end, I think it's important to work harder on the concept to make sure everything else runs smoother.
