Looking for a one of a kind holiday dress?
Although I was unfamiliar with the Weisser Glass Studio and Gallery in Kensington, MD I’m glad I know about it now. Wow, how incredible is this, Autumn Sunset Kimono by Marko & Norris?! It’s made of woven glass. Amazing.
Here’s a silent video that gives a visual snippet to help show their artistic process:
If I could afford a piece, I’d probably purchase the Ice Babies from their Nest Babies™ collection. Something about the colors are calming and contradictory with an ice climate for hatching eggs. The dichotomy speaks to me.
Their work is truly innovative and beautiful. The testimonies on their site are worth reading.
Speaking of other inspiring, fashionable art, as this “dress” above, this is a pretty dress by Leigh Reveley, who won first place for her design in the New Orleans Worn Again Competition. The dress is made of discarded fabric scraps such as rotten lace and repurposed textiles. It’s inspired by James Audubon’s Heron. The back is very sexy.
This video by David White shows the dress being modeled on the runway.
Well, this Ring Toss dress by Lee Rinnenger really caught my attention. It’s made with rings of porcelain and metallic thread. How stunning!
