Made to Dance

I like the idea of clothing that requires a wearer. Tulle ballgowns and sharply tailored suites look stunning on a hanger, but there are lots of clothing that look like a lumpy mess until they find someone to “activate” them. More of a symbiotic relationship than a partnership. This gorgeous wedding dress is one of those items.

Dress 1 Dress 3 Dress 4 Dress 5 Dress 8 Dress 7 Dress 6 Dress 2 Dress 9

It reminds me of a quote from the Secret Lives of Dresses:

“I didn’t really didn’t know that I was a dress built for dancing, though, until she started dancing by herself. She’d put me and the music on and just spin and spin…A knife cuts and a hose waters and I help her dance. That’s how it is”

And yes, like I said, I know this is supposed to be a wedding dress, but it would be shamefully limiting – that dress was made to dance.
