DIVA Noir flyer

Two pieces made for the DIVA MN, “DIVA Noir” fashion show, a benefit event to support Minnesota HIV/AIDS service organizations. The concept given was to be inspired by the divas of the film noir era, but to put a modern twist to the show. The two pieces are hand dyed, 100% cotton muslin. The idea was to create an evening dress and a party dress that you could stuff into your overnight bag, wear on the runway and then toss in the wash.

it's that simple ...

I believe that fashion should be fun, creative, and above all else, comfortable. Whether it be casual, everyday clothes or a special one time evening gown, it should feel good. If the person wearing it is not comfortable, it defeats the purpose. And if it feels good, you'll look good. It's that simple.

... and i love it!
