Allison Wronka THE2000 Section #3582 Production Project 2 For my project I chose to do a costume design. I decided to focus on the character Rose from the play, Fences . More specifically I chose to design her costume for Act II Scene 2. In this scene, it’s six months after Troy tells Rose that he is having an affair with Alberta and that she is pregnant. I wanted to create an outfit for Rose that captures the essence of her pain yet also her strength to continue caring for her children and even Troy.

The best fabric choice for this is cotton. Most importantly, I wanted to incorporate Roses personality into the design. Rose is a kind-hearted yet very strong woman. I wanted to show that Rose still dresses nice to please herself instead of pleasing her cheating husband, Troy. The dress shows that she still likes to be well presented yet still lets her go about taking care of her family comfortably. For the color of the dress, I chose a light pink to match her name, Rose, and also because I think its a good color to show her good nature.
