Garment Design Concept "Metamorphosis"

inspired by the Dragonfly : Urothemis signata 

Concept "Metamorphosis" is a fashion Garment made from a material called "Tyvek"

it was made using NO stitches but melted together, utilizing the unique material characteristic of "Tyvek"

             "Metamorphosis" was designed by exploring the color and textural                 characteristic of the dragonfly : Urothemis signata
