Style with Elements: Designs by Chelsea Bell
Fashion on Main in the UNT System Building
December 1 -16, 2011
University of North Texas fashion design student Chelsea Rose Bell answers the needs of today’s women, taking into account their busy lifestyles with her well-tailored ponté knit dresses and ensembles that offer the comfort of jersey and the feminine styling of the 1950s. Each piece is adorned with her hand-crafted metalwork embellishments.
Bell, who is working toward a master of fine arts degree in fashion design from the UNT College of Visual Arts and Design, researched the needs of women today and turned her findings into a stylish collection that will be on display in a free fashion exhibition. Style with Elements: Designs by Chelsea Bell will be exhibited from Thursday, December 1 through Friday, December 16 at Fashion on Main in the UNT System Building, 1901 Main St. in Dallas.
An opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 1, 2011.
“The idea is you can pull the garment out of your closet and wear it without having to think about getting ready,” said Bell, a Dallas resident who earned a bachelor’s degree in fashion design from UNT in 2006. “The adornments are more than just an accessory, but they are works of art in themselves and a perfect complement to the fashion design.”
