Design Description

This two piece dress is designed using photography film roll sourced from a local photographer. The negatives contain thousands of images from the last ten years, ranging from family portraits to sports teams and beyond. This dress is completely hand sewn, hand knitted and ruffled. The dress starts as a bardot style at the top and flows down to an elegant fish tail and train. There are three different textures in line with the rule of thirds in photography. The headpiece is created through ruffling, the main body is hand knitted and the train is created using a lace stitch to finish.
