Edwardian costume inspired by a chapter in the novel Einsteins Dreams by Alan Lightman. This costume was based on Edwardian styles, shapes and silhouette whilst inspired by nightingale birds which get trapped in bell jars within an chapter in the book. The costume enables characters to elegantly transform into a bird.
On this project I created the concept, analysed the text to create a developed character and designed and made this Edwardian bird inspired costume. To reach my desired end result I collaborated with a model and photographer to creating these beautiful images.
