The goal of our project was to create wearable art for the planet of Margrathea from the novel The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The main ideas that we wanted to come across was that Margrathea was a very rich planet whose job it was to create other planets through a white hole using gold and platinum.
Our inspiration for this project was designers like Alexander McQueen because he makes amazing designs that are not only art, but also clothing. We looked at many of his creations for inspiration for our wearable art.
We came up with a design that not only incorporated many of the aspects of Magrathea, but also is a design that is completely wearable. Our inspiration came from the idea the white hole. A white hole is the opposite of a black hole. It creates things instead of sucking and destroying things like a black hole.
On the dress there are two while holes and the sash in the middle represents the materials from the white holes coming together to form a planet.
