Rysa Ruth: Mystique
I am from Tallahassee, Florida and came to NC State to study fashion design. This collection is inspired by a group of photos that are uncomfortable yet compelling. The photos are uneasy, mysterious, and dark, which are the elements I pulled from to design this collection. The inspiration images force the viewer to question what they are seeing. This lead me to design each garment in a way that pushes the boundaries on expectations and causes the viewer to look twice to understand.
