Made one at a time in our NY studio.
Inspired by "Boro" textile, (traditional Japanese patchwork clothings worn by farmers, merchants and other working folks) various shades of silk pieces were patched together artfully to create this one of a kind dress.
Each silk pieces are hand dyed multiple times creating rich and nuanced shades of blues.
Extended shoulders with v-neck .
Sack dress with slight A-line flare.
Made with medium weight crepe de chine silk with elegant drape and matte texture.
Pure silk is very breathable and stays cool during warm seasons.
But it can also be surprisingly warm when layered with other thin layers of natural fibers.
Feels heavenly on bare skin, drapes oh so beautifully.
All pieces are overlock together securely without any fraying.
