DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

Strapless dress with an irregular lower part. The base has been worked in order to create the shape of wings at the hips level. Covered with natural feathers sewed by hand. Together with the dress I made a crown made out of natural tree branches and some high transparent platform shoes which have been previously worked in a mold.

INSPIRATION

My inspiration was Anselm Kiefer. I was interested particularly on his work about the historical and mythological identity of women. At my creative work I have merged this with perceptions of my own culture, in order to make the artistic expression coexist, and to deal with the relationship between concept, vision, nature and design.

MATERIALS USED

The materials used for the dress are: felt, natural feathers and filling material to give shape to the hips. Shoes: transparent resin. Crown: natural tree branches.
