The embellished dresses of Marit Fugiwara

MARIT-FUGIWARA-cakedress1-600x896-1

The textile work in these pieces are so amazing that you almost forget about the dress. They are by Marit Fujiwara, a Rio de Janeiro, Brazil based designer. Her collection, called Wound, is based upon abandoned objects found around the city. Unfortunately, I could not find much information about Fujiwara, aside from the fact that she graduated from the University of the Arts London in textile design. Nor could I find out about processes she used to make these creations, but they do appear to be hand-dyed (marbled) silk with embroidery. Other areas appear to be nuno-felted, a technique where loose wool fibers are bonded to gauze-like silk. I love those luscious pleats!
