This has been an extremely productive school year and I'm just catching up with my posts. Here are my designs for an episode of Rome where Caesar goes to Egypt and meets Cleopatra.
This project is all about establishing two different ancient worlds. The Romans are in reds, browns and golds with large draped garments. Egypt during this time period is predominantly in white draped tunics, however I wanted to emphasize their extreme wealth by adding a lot of gold tones and jewelery. And of course it's all about Cleopatra. Even when she's naked she needs to exude strength.
