This is my dress that I submitted to the Spirit of the Black Dress 2011 competition.
The competition has specific sustainable guidelines to ensure that the garment is produced from sustainable materials and is made in a sustainable way. The idea behind my dress was that it is a simple black dress that accessories can be added to create a new look. The skirt is detachable and the dress has small buttonholes on the shoulders and lower back allowing collars and other neck pieces to be added.
It is now in the top 10 so will be shown at L’Oreal Fashion Festival in March 2011.
Shown at the Trust on Flinders Lane 12th – 21st March 2011 The Spirit of the Black Dress Competition.
