fashion compositions

This was my first attempt with that many silhouettes on a page. It was inspired by the fashion in the 20's and 30's and from Gustav Klimt's paintings. The whole thing is very chaotic, with all the colours and shapes mixing with the over detailed background, but when it comes to me, I guess nothing is simple. I've been playing with fur textures, long, straight-cut dresses, hats and volumes.

I made this on the last day of school, when I was in the 11th grade. It was summer, the teacher was in no mood for us, we were in no mood for school, so she gave us this assignment: combine 3 periods in the fashion history, in 3 outfits on the same page. So I chose my all time favorite Ancient Egypt, then Ancient Greece and the Romanticism period. So basically I used a lot of hieroglyphs, drapery, transparent silky fabrics, straps, corsets and mixed them together. I really thought that the combination between greens, reds and blues will be very tricky, but in the end I managed to pull it of.
