'midnight at noon' detailed dress-to-vest art clothing

A super detailed, pure modern art creation, this piece can be worn both as a dress and as a vest, with some suggestions shown here in pictures. The hand-painted dark neutral colors over black add just enough color variation to this beautiful, pleasant-to-wear piece. While the body is made out of lightweight stretch cotton poplin, with adjustable drawstring in the front, the bottom features lots of gathered silk for a skirt that has a great bounce to it. All signature detailing has been used in the creation of this true art-to-wear modern piece, from distressing to appliqué and embroidery, to name a few. Generally lightweight, it does have a bit of added weight because of lots of yardage of silk on the bottom. It will not wrinkle easily which makes it also great for travel. Product code: G3744

Very brief cold water hand wash, a few drops of mild detergent, always separately, spin in washer and dry on medium, or air dry and finish in dryer to soften. Also can be dry cleaned by mild methods, or dry cleaned in dryer at home with a store-bought kit. Do not use stain removers, spot treaters or bleach pens. Contact us for any advice, if needed.

All garments arrive to you freshly cleaned, unlike regular store-bought items, and are ready to wear.

Dry-cleaning is ok on most items but only if gentle methods are used and the cleaners are familiar with cleaning hand-painted delicate fabrics.

To freshen up any item that doesn’t need deep cleaning simply mist it with a water spray and put in the dryer on medium heat for about 15 min.

All garments can be hand washed. Wash each item separately, cold water only, minimal amount of detergent, and as briefly as possible, no soaking. The wash can be followed by a spin in the washer and dried on medium heat until dry. Knits should be hung-dried and when dry, finished in the dryer for a few minutes to soften.

Hand-pressing may be necessary after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.

Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.

For more tips and details please refer to the cleaning instructions card included with your package.
