Tremendously excited to collaborate with another Bay Area creative, Ajok Deng! She is a social media influencer I found online expressing content of travel and fashion, which, correlates to my brand statement. Her profile presents exuberant engagement of international places she's been, fashion she's exhibiting, and even sharing her itinerary destination in her timeline. I didn't want to miss the chance of taking part in her next adventure. From a direct message on Instagram, I was fortunate to meet her here, San Francisco in person. From there we briefly introduced ourselves and right away, we were excited about working together. One thing that stood out from her content was the display of bright multi-colors. I like color, hence, this explains the reason for pastel color blocking presented in my design. She's a rising star in the world of social media and its influencers. I'm honored having the opportunity in collaborating with her.

This dress was influenced by the visual art technique, Deco or Art Deco. I took a few color attributes from her Instagram post that gave me the color palette to use. Creatively, the dress is puzzled together piece by piece with pleated black trim inserted vertically to capture your eye and enhance the effect. The silhouette is a maxi trapeze halter made with a lightweight cotton twill of eight colors. I went this direction to suit her style but depict her Instagram content to what grasped my attention initially.
