Fall 2015

This look was designed for the dandy menswear brand, Beyond Closet. Kelsey researched into the Romantic Era of literature, as well as how it contrasted with the Industrial Revolution. Inspired by Grimm’s fairytale, Kelsey designed a stylized pair of lederhosen using recycled denim and Japanese embroidery techniques with a 3-T-shirt that mimics three shirts sewn together, using the neck-holes for one’s arms.
