Medical Gauze Dress

My medical gauze dress and guitar on display at SVA’s Gramercy Gallery in the spring of 2018.

I created this dress out of 4320 yards of medical gauze. Strips of medical gauze were sewn together and then cut into a pattern that was drafted by taking measurements from the dress form. The dress was then sewn together and hand painted with black acrylic paint and adorned with silver chain. Strips of leather were cut and made into a collar and body harness with metal fastenings. The guitar was treated in a similar fashion.
