UCA BA (Hons) Fashion Design Rochester student Marelle Steblecki created this beautiful piece for her final for the ‘Cut to Suit’ unit. 😍 Marelle said "My cut to suit project was inspired by Peter Minshall's Saga Boy and Tan Tan puppets from Trinidad and Tobago Carnival. I was inspired by the fluidity of the characters and the structural work that goes into creating them. During my design development, I made significant links between the characters and the classic zoot suit design. The overall aesthetic I was led to through my research was a winter sun holiday to the Caribbean which resulted in a coat inspired by a 1940's silhouette with a structured soft drape."
