Morgan Bajardi's op art dress

I couldn't wait to share with you some work from my friend Morgan Bajardi Morgan designed, hand made the textile print,  draped (for the first time..I think she did great!),  and hand sewed this dress.   The optical illusion plays with the shape of the female form on a flat surface.   She created other print with beautiful shapes and color ways.   There is one color/shape combination in particular that I am dieing to get my hands on!!!!!! I was a little sick when we did this mini shoot, but deadlines are deadlines...
Qeue up and put your orders in ladies! ;)
