Don’t Fret – Thought couture guitar pick sculptural gown
Don’t Fret is a unique sculptural gown designed to express the intimate joy of music as a gentle layer caressing the body like a song. The silhouette mimics the style and movement of a bias cut 1930’s gown and as a result it looks and feels like a second skin, on the model.
1,256 picks were hand drilled and carefully connected with brass wire to create the classic lines of this silhouette. There is an illusion of a regular pattern — diagonal stripes — but In actuality each pick had to be carefully planned and placed before drilling. Essentially the techniques used to create this are more akin to jewelry making than to fashion because no cloth or thread is use. This sculptural gown was designed from a full 360″ perspective enabling it to look stunning from every angle.
The gown has been exhibited and published:
