sculptural dresses from silk organza
In Her Closet” is an installation of 12 dresses made of silk organza. The fabric choice is a conscious effort to address the transparency of one’s identity; characteristics that the individual might not think are obvious but can be readily apparent to others. The use of organza allows the viewer to see the way in which the garment has been sewn or structured. While this demonstrates the process involved in sewing I feel it also demonstrates the process of living.
