This one of a kind silk art gown consists of two paintings printed one over another by accident. Typically, I use individual art prints to design dresses that were featured in New York and Paris Fashion Weeks - and for collections that were featured in publications such as New York Times and Elle Magazine. However, my idea for this mini-collection started with this gown as work in progress. Originally, I had a very different idea with where I wanted this collection to go. However, once I found this particular long silk print with two of my artworks combined, I became curious. I wanted to see what it would look like if I made something of it. I started draping the print around the mannequin and was playing it with by pinning it in all the right and wrong places :) Finally, I saw it. I got my result and couldn't believe that originally I wanted to through it away because of this "accidental print".
This dress comes with a signed, limited edition art print based on the original painting that inspired the dress. Two Become One comes with two matching prints because it consists of two paintings one printed over another!
The lesson learned here, in art, nothing is accidental. Everything happens for a reason. I hope you enjoy it! :)
