Tara Nourhosseini is a Grade 11 student who created a coat inspired by the Expressionism Period. The coat is yellow, red, beige and blue, made of polyester, cotton and nylon. Her design features snakes hand-painted on the fabric.
Throughout the process, Tara discovered her preference for abstract art to traditional art – enjoying the creative process of it. In her design experience, she learned that creating a fashion item is harder than it looks and she’s learned to appreciate the clothes she owns. Her advice to future participants is to not plan too much, and make things up as you go and it’s more fun and will end up looking more interesting.
