The concept dress

You may have seen some of the FASHFEST promotional material around Canberra featuring the white dress below. Originally this garment was made for a mannequin however after a call out from the FASHFEST producers requesting a 'concept garment' for a photoshoot I modified the top to make it a little more modest.  

The dress was on display at Assemblage Project. There has been some interest with customers trying it on. The garment is made from interfacing and one of the frequent questions asks was how to care for it or what happens if it tears. It is easy. Add another layer of interfacing to the garment to cover the damage and slowly the garment changes to become uniquely yours.
