Design Description

1500 used matches were collected and arranged in snowflake and square designs to create the top of this dress and our shoes. Bags of straw were gathered from a farm and were sorted, each strand was individually curled and hand-sewn onto the skirt and shoulders. For the headpiece matchboxes were sprayed and glued, raising awareness of fire safety ’Fire catches, so don’t play with matches.
