As part of the the 2012 Passion for Fashion exhibition, we are seeking inspired designers to create a contemporary look based on one of our many historic garments. If your concept sketch is approved, your work will be featured in the forthcoming book and possibly selected be among the 10-12 key fashions on exhibition and as part of the accompanying fashion show.
Interested? Here is the first mission - a romantic, multi-tiered floral print dress worn by Sarah Parker Goodwin, c. 1847-1850. Can you transform this billowing gown into something chic, trendy, elegant, funky--very now?
Please contact me with your ideas! Publication deadline looming....
