Our local shopping center has a few empty stores these days, but they seem to be trying to make use of them. Today I found an exhibition of costume art put on by students from a local college. As far as I can make out, the brief was to design dresses influenced by nature, which naturally resulted in some fantastical creations. I took some photos.
My favorite dress was this “Wood Witch” by Zoe Dolman. It reminded me of something Terri Windling might have drawn.
The bottom of the dress has more of a seaweed air to it.
Zoe tells me that her ambition is to do costume design for people like Tim Burton, which is a very fine sort of ambition to have.
If I was going to pick a dress to wear it would be this one:
This one looks like something that the Red Queen might wear:
This was just a skirt, but again very striking.
