Strapless dress & silk organza wrap

This Carlson ensemble includes a Phil Frost x Carlson hand drawn white cotton t-shirt from the summer 2001/02 collection, Rise of the Coloured Empires. The black lace and silk tiered strapless dress was created in 2008 for the Positively Glamorous charity fashion show to support the Aids Foundation and World Aids Day. It is made from various fabrics including glass beaded tulle, silk organza, nylon and rayon lace. The hand dyed silk cotton and polished silk organza wrap was part of a gown created for the Auckland City Mission charity event, Fashion Rocks, in July 2007. The leather studded belt is from the winter 2014 collection, Bright Lights, Big City.
