Wrapping the Enrapture is my dream collection I'm constructing during my Senior year at SCAD before I venture off to the fashion world.

My name is Lauren Monreal and my collection is called Wrapping the Enrapture. My collection is inspired by the basket sculptures created by artist Debora Muhl. I loved how free formed her shapes are, and it feels as if they are capturing the negative space. I took those feelings and applied them to my collection. I have sculptured pieces that created a relationship with in the space of around the human figure. I'm using textured fabrics outside as well as inside. 

In my collection I plan on using as many natural dyes as possible. During times like this when there are many things we are doing that are hurting our earth, I do believe in trying to use items and processes that wont cause more harm. Unfortunately there no such thing as a man made item that is fully sustainable, but I do want to do my part by using as many natural items as possible. I'm going to use natural fibers, natural dyes, and a process called eco bundling. As I'm starting to to create these garments and proceed with some of the processes the cost is starting to be greater that I was hoping. This is were I need you help to see the collection out the way I intended. 

I am doing the collection for my senior year at Savannah College of Art and Design. This collection shows who I am as a art, and is paving a way to show the fashion world what I can do before I venture off into it.
