Janet Blood presented two custom designs at the International Textile and Apparel Association Annual Conference in Charlotte, NC.

Child's Play:

Experimental design using the components of two Rainbow Looms to create a jersey knit tank dress. Spectrum color loom bands were alternated with black bands to give a rainbow visual effect.

Lava Flow:

Design inspired by volcanic eruptions and flowing molten lava. The effect was created by mixing tactile and visual textures as well as over-dyeing. The design bodice has a back lace opening and halter neckband. The asymmetrical skirt has both a back and front train of patterned silk charmeuse. Jewelry details highlight the neck and hipline area.
