Fashion and Textile Design

Miriam created a group of female night-watchers with characteristics that enable them to live in the dark without fear. Layers of sheer and thick fabrics and changes in colour suggest depth; layered prints result from combining collages, drawings and photos. De Waard made her own plissés to create the silhouettes she wanted, and she did some experimenting, winding copper wire and melting sequins on fabric. A mysterious look is the promising outcome.
