Alexandrite Nights


Surface pattern designs created for evening/party/holiday women's wear and for accessories

Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?

Hand drawn motifs layered and manipulated in Inkscape and Adobe Photoshop programs. I wanted to create designs that were inspired by the Russian Alexandrite gem stone. Alexandrite is a chameleon type of stone. It has a rich green color in the daylight, making it appear as an emerald, but in the light of night, it appears as a ruby.
This collection is for evening/party/holiday women's wear and accessories .

What were you trying to express?

I wanted to express evening gala and the feel of looking into facets and shimmers of dark gemstones.

Is it 100% your original work?

Yes. The picture of the model is from
