The work of our Fashion Design Program sophomore Alara Alarcin's work "Oriental Breeze" has been selected to be exhibited at the FIT Graduation Exhibition 2021 - AAS. The work named “Oriental Breeze”, prepared by our student inspired by eastern culture, modern Egyptian and Indian art, consists of a patchwork dress. The designs include colorful fabrics brought by the oriental breeze, oriental patterns, geometric shapes and the mystery of shape-color confusion. Since the aim of the study is to design a recycling project, each piece of the dress consists of pieces cut from either leftover fabrics from previous projects or various shawl-like clothing and accessories. In this work, in which both knitted and woven fabrics are used together, it is possible to see many natural and synthetic fabric types from satin to wool, from viscose to polyester. On the other hand, it was intended to give the dress a more natural and shabby look by making several different vibrantly colored overlocks outward rather than inward. Since the harmony of so many different elements together reflects Istanbul and Hagia Sophia, which has a universal value, it was preferred to shoot the design in front of the fascinating Hagia Sophia Mosque.
