Notes on the piece:
The early concept for this piece was based on a suspension bridge. A main suspension cable with multiple suspender cables spanning from the main. We drafted with the idea to have brass rod as the dividing line coming across the body. Each panel of the stretch knit was drafted to create tension on the vertical line. Early prototypes showed that the brass was too heavy, and corsetry boning was too structured. In its final form the vertical line is a stretch grosgrain ribbon which allows it to conform to the body and gives it versatility by being able to adjust the amount of gathers on the panels and position to support the bust.
