One of my very first designs, became at the same time, one of the most complex creations I'll tailor in the next 2 years of my education class at Michelbeuern School of Fashion. The entire chest & backpart was covered with a scale-system, which I've ordered from Canada and had to compile all by myself with special forceps.
I used an A-shape for the scaffold which includes an interesting "open-cut" at the front and triangle folds at the backside of the dress. The arm bits have scale shaped shoulder-parts and the scale panelling goes all the way round from the chest till the upper back of the shoulder blades.

This design was the first creation including our color concept, which you can find on the bottom left in one of the circle picture-frames. It's also related to an idea of Koi-carps as the color-combination reminds me of these beautiful fish. Even the scales go with this topic and the connection-elements at the backside of each scale, which are connected with each other, make it even possible to havea smooth movementexperience experience.
