Nahant designer incorporates tie-dye to collection
on Monday,July 11,2011 21:07
The Nahant fashion designer, Carter Smith, has incorporated Shibori, which is more commonly known as tie-dye, and the Japanese art form origami, into his many styles and collections, according to ItemLive.
Smith uses these tools to create lavish colors on simple dress structures. His goal is to create the dress that makes women feel confident and comfortable. He coined this as the "Magic Dress."
"When you put on the right piece, this connection happens that brings out a kind of inner beauty in the wearer," Smith told the news provider.
Smith's dresses are one-of-a-kind - literally. The news source reports that he has never made the same dress twice in the 46 years that he has been a designer.
Prospective fashion designers can make around $60,000 once their career takes off. That figure was the annual median salary for professionals in this field in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, it is also possible to make a great deal more. In that same year, the top 10 percent of fashion designers earned over $125,000 annually.
