DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
Added means to ornament too much. The body of garment is designed based on functional wear such as work and military wear to emphasize nonfunctional ornaments. I would like to show the function of nonfunctional ornaments in fashion aspect with presenting these a lot of ornaments.
