Washington was a true Renaissance man (political figure, architect, planter, botanist, innovator, and artist). This gave me the fresh twist and modern-day perspective for the collection. I designed the packaging as a collage, strategically weaving in his many interests and pursuits. I juxtaposed a field of parchment paper with vibrant photos and paintings, giving glimpses into the plantation and its gardens, significant historic events and pages from his botanical volumes. I used his personal architectural and landscape drawings throughout to give the collection a more personal touch. The ribbon and wax seal on the brochure and color books give the pieces an official feel, perfect for the fabric collection of the first American president.
