Crafted by the talented embroiderers in our studio in Mumbai, the All Over Bows Dress is made of 22 metres of the most gorgeous midnight blue 100% silk crepe. The fabric itself is gossamer-fine, but the sheer volume of fabric and the work means that all together, the dress itself weighs just under 6.5 kilos.
The bows are handmade in five different sizes, starting at the top of the dress and gradually getting bigger as they head towards the hem. As it’s being made, the dress gets heavier and heavier, which means that extra pairs of hands have to be drafted in to help hold it while the machinist assembles the dress.
Not so much a dress as a work of art.
