Each sketch is hand drawn and rendered with watercolor. 

The inspiration for this collection was pulled from a pile of rejection emails received from job positions I have applied for. Each rejection letter seems to hold me back from having confidence in my next interview. The style lines on each dress were developed with the concept of being bound by rejection and your own lack of confidence. The literal binding on each dress and the seams appear to be wrapping around the silhouette. The playful colors with the contrast from the embroidered, black and white striped binding show that even when you are held back by self doubt you can shine through and overcome any obstacle.
