the fermentation of an idea ~ 2 years

Today I installed a dress in the
windows of Studio one80 in downtown Natick. They have started a tradition of holiday windows and i was lucky enough to be ask to do a window. It was a quick turn around so I wasn't able to take a picture of the dress before it was in the window - so the photos are not great - but when the dress comes out I will have a better shot.

The cool thing about this dress is how it fell in place ~ I was asked late Wed. evening. Immediately i remembered a dress that i had sketched 2 years ago - one dealing with the surreal~ness of the consumerism and festivities of the holiday month while men and women were fighting & dying in Iraq. This dress has an evergreen skirt with dog tags as ornaments and the bodice is a wrapped ace bandage. It was wonderful to execute this dress after it was in one of my sketch books for 2 years!! So keep the faith in those ideas yet realized and know that their time will come. peace
