Abstract: Fashion is a form of self-identification, symbolic of whom we are, how we want others to perceive us, and with whom we choose to associate ourselves. Dress of any given culture goes hand in hand with the events of the time period it corresponds to, along with what that culture perceives as beautiful at that time. It is a means of expressing ideals, attitudes, and social change, and as such, could be considered a form of art. The interpretation of music, like art, is highly subjective and is used as a means of communication of an idea or emotion. This project aims to connect music and fashion and use the ideas evoked from music to create a collection of garments. The prevalence of Electronic Dance Music today represents the present and future in popular culture. Electronic Dance Music artist Krewella’s debut album “Get Wet” served as the inspiration for this project. Six songs were chosen from the album and one look was created to correspond to each of the six songs. Materials used in the construction of the garments consist solely of synthetics, representative of the future of fashion and serving as a stark reminder that Earth is a delicate balance of nature that we must nurture or face losing forever. A catalog of the collection accompanies this essay with detailed descriptions of the inspirational song and design process for each look.
