Shadow - artist linen dress (Q1035)
dew linen (natural beige) for maind body and docrating strips


A moon without shadow
A tree without shadow
A road without shadow
A home without shadow
A pray without shadow
An oil lamp without shadow
A sleeping baby beside it, so pure
Is this why I came all the way for?
The Snow Mountains keep silent
Leaving me sleepless
Embraced by bright moonlight

A home without shadow


This dress was born after I found some beautiful hand painted coconut buttons in a new material sourcing trip, or after I had three- day fever after the trip. Nearly after every material sourcing trip, I get one disease, such as cold, fever or aching back after 12 hours long distance bus this time (6 biz trips during Sep and Oct). I was a lawyer before creating clothing, never took any course on designing. All I can do is to follow my heart and use my sense. What I am doing to me is like looking for the gem of my life, too many glittering rocks on the way, I pick up one and thought I found the right raw stone, then it might become a dead baby bird in my hand. Nothing to do with a shop with pretty things or just improving to be the best; each new design is a test and exploration to find who I am, what I am pursuing and what is final meaning we learn before the destination. I am the stubborn and earnest person, love to be tortured and self-challenged to learn the answer. Even if I don’t get it, I won’t give up so easily.

Here are some points worth highlighting besides the pictures:

* Using dart lines and pleats in front and adding cutting pieces by sides and at back to get a unique flowing hem, larger than 360 degree. This dress is by far the most fabric consumed design in our shop, size S takes 4.5 meters/ 15 feet quality linen letting alone the trimmings. The hem is shorter in front and longer at back, very flattering and special. You will love the way it is, promise you can’t find it in any store .

* Abstract and minimized art deco detail by using trimmings in brown and coconut buttons. It is a tree, a vine of fruits or flowers, a shooting star? You may let me know your guess. The coconut buttons are 100% natural and hand painted with eco-friendly lacquer in boho colors. Very earthy and beautiful in a quirky way.

* Sleeves can be long sleeves, 3/4 sleeves or short sleeves as you wish, kindly contact us if you want your dress other than long sleeves.
