Green Orchid

This piece was primarily hand sewn on it's model, Megan Dole, one Friday night in my studio.  A combination of ruched metallic lycra in a Sage to Silver ombre, irridescent taffeta ranging from rust to sage, bronze colored plastic, and spiraled chiffon in Sage/Silver with some Gold taffeta lining.

Megan's background as a hammer thrower in college comes through loud and clear in the fierceness of her posing here. 

The headpiece and shoes were created in the last 48 hours before the show.
