Dress for Dubai

In 2007, Hailey (my partner and model in the picture above) and I worked on a dress made out of paper that reflected the city of Dubai. It was very ‘Project Runway’ of our art class, although we took months, not days, to make it work ;) . Of course, the details and attachments are made from other things like eyelets, ribbon, tulle, hundreds of tiny brads, string, small beads, and my favorite: shattered glass!

Let me know if you’d like to see more :D !

An old fairy tale comes to life!

I recently rediscovered The Steadfast Tin Soldier and thought I’d bring it to life. Thanks to the word (used bookstore very close to my apartment in Montreal), I found the perfect ‘beat up’ book for only 1$!
