After hours and hours of careful preparation, this is what the dress looked like when I shipped the bits to Cologne ...
And after days and days of making & assembling, tweaking and colaging it finally looked like this:
Here it is in all it's glory ... this was quite an achievement for me colourwise as I usually prefer working in monochrome ... but creating this piece was a real pleasure, especially hiding little details like vintage keys on velvet ribbons, ...
... letters, numbers, scissors, butterflies, writ and even a camera in the folds of the petals.
A very beautiful thing in a sleek environment.
(and here is me on the right ...)
