MANIFEST DESTINY

The concept of this project was to illustrate the similarities between the formal elements in classical clothing to the formal elements in nature. I attempt to prove that people in the past have a greater connection to nature, and this sense of connection fades as time passes. The images show the use of ornamental, flowery patters compared to the current styles of contemporary clothing, which often represent simple, monochromatic, straight lines, reminiscent of urban environments.
