'pleat me a sculpture' avant-garde sculptural asymmetrical metallic-over-black dress

A true art couture piece, this dress will make quite an entrance! As versatile as possible, following the artist's commitment to making each piece easy to 'play with', this dress can be worn backwards, for a different look, and can be layered with short skirts as well, or worn with tights. Mini-dress-shorter on one side, it can be worn with opaque tights or even jeans, if you don't want to show any leg, or wear it with a mini skirt underneath (shown in some of the pictures) with bare legs. Great for paring with jackets, shrugs and sweaters, too. Hand-painted in metallic tones over black, it can be a head-turning cocktail/evening piece, or dressed down with jeans or skinny pants for daytime. Product code: E4565

Hand wash cold, drip or line dry.

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.
