Collaboration: The ‘Orchid Kimono’ dress – Alia Bastamam x Marini for Elle Malaysia (2014)

I was invited to do a pretty cool collaboration called “Fashion Meets Art” where I was paired with Alia Bastamam to create a dress together. I love Alia, I wear Alia so the collaboration was super exciting for me. We communicated completed online and we both decided to work on the orchid + butterfly as our inspiration. Alia came up with the kimono dress to mimic the petals of the flowers and I painted on the details a few days before the event and during the even itself. FUN project with lovely results. AGAIN please!
