For Wearable Arts this year I worked around colour.
The theme for this year was festivals around the world and
we chose the Holi festival because it stands out from others.
Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal,
also known as the "festival of colour". This celebration was first
done in 1933. Our custom is made out of horse ribbons for the
headpiece, tie dye curtain fabric for the saree with a wonderful coloured
arm peice. all put together to be amazing the hardest part was tye dyeing,
it was a drama. It took so long to dye and set but the finished product is
fabulous. I made the saree well but I would put more effort in
to my book work and my saree. I didn't think though that my flowers
will come off when I walk so I had to take them off.
