Poseidon's Palace: Design Inspiration

My thesis collection at the Fashion Institute of Technology was called Poseidon's Palace. This collection was inspired by underwater art, deep sea creatures and sunken treasure.

Underwater Art by Jason de Caires Taylor - The purple algae billows off of this sculpture like delicate wings.


Cuttlefish - This deep sea creature has skin that glows and changes patterns and colors. They mate once and die right after giving birth.


Sunken Treasure - There are millions of wrecked ships on the ocean floor that went down with billions of dollars of material wealth.


Pearls - All pearl oysters are born male and transform into females at three years of age. Brings a whole new meaning to the term "Dropping Gems".


Narwhals - Whales with horns like a unicorn. I don't think anything else needs to be said.

Can't wait to show you what I came up with using all of these design inspirations.

Until next design,
