The Red Dress

Kim Adonizio's What do Women Want? homage in dress form...

I want a red dress. 
When I find it, I’ll pull that garment 
from its hanger like I’m choosing a body 
to carry me into this world, through 
the birth-cries and the love-cries too, 
and I’ll wear it like bones, like skin, 
it’ll be the goddamned 
dress they bury me in.

Made from matching garnet red Duchess satin silk, silk Georgette crêpe and silk Marocain crêpe dyed and woven in Belgium and based on Marcel Ostertag's Autumn/Winter 2015 Lava gown. Photographed in Blois amidst the historical town center's old stone.
