Rose Adélaïde Ducreux / Lydia O Dress Project
Started Mar. 9, 2022
Abstract or project description
This project consists of 3 steps:
- The painting "Self Portait with a Harp" by Rose-Adélaïde Ducreux is analyzed for both cultural context and fashion content.
- The type of dress worn in the painting is researched for garment construction, fabric, and silhouette, with the understanding of the other garments that shape the dress underneath.
- The garment is constructed in a historically accurate manner to reflect what such a dress may have looked like.
