Surrealism Dress

Added Aug 20, 2008

London, United K...






I made this after seeing the “Surreal Things: Surrealism and Design” exhibition at the V&A museum. I made up the pattern and drew the image on with permanent marker pens.

Material Notes

Calico and some permanent marker pens.

    That’s a fantastic dress! What a great idea – the drawing’s wonderful and it looks really cool. I love to hear where people get their inspiration from… particularly when it’s a V&A exhibition (I’m biased as I work there!).
