Story of this drawing: One of my friends asked me if I had ever done Chinese painting. This question inspired me to start paying attention to Chinese painting again. I used to love the Chinese painting’s poetic aesthetic, simplicity and abstraction. The empty space even plays a important part in the painting! When I looked at some Chinese paintings again, I couldn’t help to try it by myself. I started with some sketches from my trips of mid-southern China: the little bridge and gondola man, then mixed that with a village built along the mountain. When I finished this drawing, I realized where the aesthetic comes from. Lots of Chinese villages are just beautiful and poetic by themselves and those wonderful Chinese painters have found a great way to represent it!
This drawing definitely needs a long body dress to present it! I printed this drawing onto an elegant grey dress. The dress is made of two different fabrics: the front panel is knit wool and the back panel is soft pre-washed satin. Two different fabrics make an interesting contrast for this dress. I also hand stitched 8 shiny red sequins under the roofs as the Chinese lanterns. You can’t see any sequins on any Chinese painting though, but they look great on this dress!

Only available is size S. M and L are sold out!
S / 2-4 / BUST 31"- 33"/ WAIST 23"-25"/ HIPS 33"-35" Length: 36"
