dc.description.abstract In my thesis of work, I was inspired by the changing seasons as reflected in nature. I chose the four seasons as a theme because I have always been intrigued by the different colors and textures that are reflected by nature in the different seasons. An interest in garments helped me decide how to apply this interest to my thesis. I have chosen to create garments which are both aesthetically and functionally sensitive to our human needs. By producing a variety of techniques and styles, I hope to appeal to clothing wearers everywhere. On October 13, 1989, 1 was flying over Syracuse on my way to Massachusetts. As the airplane descended, I could see the shadow of the plane on the forest below. The colors of the leaves on the trees were so intense and so beautiful, I thought there must be some way to capture the feeling of the changing seasons in my garments. I tried to visualize different colors and motifs to coincide with my feelings during each of the seasons as we know them here on the East Coast. en_US
