Was this the inspiration for ‘the dress’? It was stunning. Saw the video interview of your discussing the need for the dress to shimmer in the candlelight, and how hours were spent flaking the chips of mica (?) that were used to add that shimmer. Was the main fabric of the dress linen? And OMG–all the gathers. How much material went into making the dress?
