Fabric Techniques

I wanted to try out the idea of combining the soft feminine frills with hard fabric to try to show the binaries of gender in clothing and fabric. They haven't been very susessful, but I really like the concept of frills in leather so I want to keep trying.  

This is a fabric sample from my last project, as a way to try and represent nipples in fabric. I like the way the beads shape the fabric- however for a ready to wear collection it is not really suitable to have big chunky beads hand sewn into fabric because it would cost too much, and be uncomfortable. I want to look at other method to achieve this look.
