For my theme for my final dress I have chosen Gender from Equality and Diversity.
To begin with I have taken the most recognised symbol for gender and I turned it into a stencil. I also experimented with placing the stencils and used this as a design for a textiles sample(on right page)
On the next page I collage using stereotypical prints, textures and colours to show the difference of gender.
After this I went on to look at other symbols that can represent gender and I found that the 'Yin and Yang' sign is a very famous and popular one, I found that the white can represent women and the black men; I also found that the circle represents the world and that generally the 'yin and yang' represents two forces/objects that cannot function with out each other, This reminded me of men and women as with out each other there would be no children, therefore no people and no population on earth.
