ONE-OF-A-KIND LUXURY: L'ABITO DI DIANA

I wanted to capture the beauty of nature onto the dress, as a human wearing the "skin" of nature. Alongside the importance of imperfection to aesthetic. On the left side of the chest, there is an "unfinished" sheet of bark arisen from the dress and that represents the uncontrollable forces of nature, yet all the other pieces of barks are delicately cut and assembled together to form around the most complex body feature of a woman (breast) to show nature's beauty as it is also embracing and gentle under our hands. From my inspiration Ellie Saab, their dresses are all about the beauty of handcrafted textile, forms, embroideries and colors of nature that I want my dress to resemble. Then it is all about finding the right material with their complex texture and colors. What could be better than the choice of wood barks? Since they carry an exceptional texture and imperfections that resemble embroideries, as also their beautiful gradient from the wood color variation.
