In place of a typical black-tie formal gown, the Molten Silver adds true flare to the evening. A majority of the dress is made from upcycled material: the mullet-style skirts were from two previous gowns and the faux leather from a belt. When I draped this last semester, people asked, ‘What are you making with leather and chiffon? Is it for a class?’ A: Something worth wearing, definitely not for class! The pleats on the left side of the bodice and the tucks in the skirt are hand stitched—which was very relaxing.
