Spectral Discord is a fashion line designed and created by Rachel Ciavarella. It acts as a critique of sensory over-stimulation imposed by the modern media. Bright contrasting patterns and color blocked sections combine to create an intense visually overwhelming aesthetic that mimics the distracting nature of excessive media exposure.
Each look was designed and created by Rachel over the course of four months and exhibited at Lunar Gala. The colored fabric pattern was also designed by Rachel and custom-printed. The project was made possible with an Emerging Designer Grant through the fabric-printing company Spoonflower.
