Musically Inspired Evening Gown Concepts
At one point I had this thought about some day performing music live some day, and only ever wearing evening gowns on stage. These are four of the dresses I designed, each with a song in mind. I thought them up to visualize whether dresses alone would have enough range to cover all the styles of music I had in mind. The first dress was designed for a bluesy-type song with a chill melody and hard-hitting lyrics. The second dress was for more of a mystical and Celtic-inspired song. The third is a play on a harlequin pattern, designed for something with somewhat satirical lyrics. The last dress was drawn for a slow, orchestra-accompanied cover of "Tainted Love".
