Short mandarin collar jacket, helmet hat and long dress entirely hand-stitched and hand-embroidered with 56 500 galvanized silver Japanese glass beads and 10 grams of real silver thread spangles on pale blue organic cotton jersey fabric. The ensemble has used 8 yards of fabric, countless working hours, some 25 000 stitches and more than 900 meters of thread. It is at once a feat of patience, a humble nod to Slow Design and due homage to time-honoured North American craftsmanship.
Pale blue organic cotton jersey, Miyuki glass beads, real silver thread spangles.
