The very first post of actual clothing from my first semester at FIT! I would love to add some pieces to make it into a cohesive collection one of these days.
I died a little over this project, but it was more than worth it.
Introducing Miss Dali -
Sorry for the photo quality, the actual photograph is actually quite clear. Does anyone know how to upload a crisper photo?
I chose Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Time as inspiration. Mr. Dali's great artwork has been a muse for everything from actual clocks to tattoos, so it wasn't hard to see to the iconic melting clocks as a fashion piece as well. The focus was on the shape of Dali's clock with its fluid unpredictability. To me, it exemplified a great willingness to shift and change with the passing of time, hence the convertible skirt hem with the golden lining.
Tattoo from Chris Adamek's wonderful blog.
What it looks like with the skirt up! How scandalous. I love how it looks different every time it is converted.

Some detail shots-
Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Any buyers? I'm thinking a price tag of $5,000,000 would be fitting.
