As worn by “Game of Thrones” actress Carice van Houten in a film directed by Ryan McDaniels, the white silk organza dress is detailed with laser cut geometric-shaped filaments of black satin dotted with Swarovski crystals.
Designed with no clear top or bottom, the dress was partially inspired by Dutch artist M.C. Escher, famed for his perspective challenging art.
Press commenting on the design reads, “Like fronds frozen in time, crystalline filaments sprout from the heart of the dress. Portraying delicate new life, black seed-like crystals punctuate the tip of each stamen like strand. The concept of the creation stems from the notion of growth and regeneration. The seemingly simple seed is the embodiment of life and the potential that comes with it. A seed embedded upside down in dirt still sees the seedling growing the right way up.
“The dress follows symmetry in both its axis and without context, indiscernible which way is up or down. Motion and fluidity involved in the formation of tessellations highlight the capacity to shift between negatives and positives.”
