Dante's Rose

Well, it's not very Christmasy, but I thought I might blow my own trumpet just a little... :-)
My dress Dante's Rose came third place overall in Australia's Fashion Fantasia held in Hobart last weekend.
Made for the World of Wearable Art Awards (WOW) in New Zealand last year, it was inspired by the Dante quote, "The Rose, where in, the word Divine makes itself flesh" and is made from hand dyed silk, handcut sailcloth, boning, fishing line and synthetic rose petals.
I can't wait to get my studio done so I can start creating again.


  1. That is fantastic Sarah! Congratulations!!

  2. I have often admired the side pic of it, so it's lovely to see more views of Dante's Rose. Congrats on achieving 3rd place overall in Fashion Fantasia. Were you the model too?

  3. Thanks ladies. Kaite, no I didn't model in FF this year ( though it's me in these pics) and unfortunately it was worn by a tiny 13 yer old model so didn't really look as I had intended. Oh well :)
    Seeing the dress again is inspiring me though I need that room finished!!


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
