Official presentation of Option Explicit Gown

I retrieved my laser-etched gown from Knowlton School of Architecture a couple weeks ago and was finally able to shoot it with the mulberry leaves I picked in July with which to display it!


When in motion, this laser-etched silk/metal organza rustles not unlike an array of delicately drying mulberry leaves the silk worm is fed to produce the filament eventually spun into silk.







Of course, this means that since the gown above is no longer on display, my only dress form is open for other finished examples, so below you see the 1930 evening gown in iris sueded charmeuse!
