Last year, I told you about an invite I received to make a dress that will be put in an art exhibit from October 2019 through February 2020.
Destined By Design: A Celebration Of African American Fashion was the name of the exhibit. How could I say no? It was one of my first times making a dress that was for special occasions. And it was definitely the first time I ever had something that I created in an art display. It was such an honor!
If you didn’t get a chance to visit, you truly missed out. The talent made by other black dress and jewelry designers was amazing. Here is a look back at the process of making the dress and how it turned out.
Sourcing the fabric
First time making a corset, so had to use part of a pattern for help!
Dropping off the dress at the Texan Cultures Institute
Family coming out to show support!
The dress on display
My name on display!
Thanks to the curator who invited me to put a dress on display along with family, friends, and everyone who came out to check it out! It means the world!!
I was thinking about having a contest to give the dress away to one lucky winner. What are your thoughts on that and the dress?? Let me know in the comments…
