Inspiration Behind the Dahlia Print
Justin Wieder of Cut Floral Design is a friend of mine and also happens to be an insanely talented florist, posted a photo of these incredibly unique dahlias insisting someone make a dress inspired by ‘these weirdos’. Challenge accepted! I designed and handpainted a silk organza skirt followed by an oil painting that I turned into prints, fabric and wallpaper. Very much looking forward to future collaborations with one!
Big thanks to Kasia Avila for the the photos and Bad Hunter, Herbarium Chicago for the location.
