Peacock Dress

A Landscape in Fashion

Mixed Media/Fiber   24“ W x 48″ L  

In 2018 the Denver Art Museum did an extensive Dior exhibit. I loved seeing fashions that I remembered seeing in fashion magazines. I probably even wore facsimile dresses reproduced for a mass market. It was easy to admire how a simple sketch could be translated into a garment to be worn and cherished. I especially responded to the evening dresses by Galliano. They were incredible works of art. How I would have loved being able to wear any of them. The Peacock dress stood out for its fabulous deep colors of blue and green. Having seen the glorious array of colors in a male peacock tail, I decided to make my own version of a peacock dress portrayed on a figure. The feathers are individually collaged on the piece. Again, color is the primary focus.     $1,200
