‘Le Dress’

 
Now on display in my studio window (my studio is attached to the gallery). I eco dyed the silk for couturier Rudolf Ramseyer; dress commissioned for Miss Universe Australia entrant Stephanie King. Sponsored by Ruche Fabrics, Launceston.

A Very Tasmanian Dress

I hope you enjoy this short video which documents the finished design of Stephanie King’s gown for the Miss Universe Australia 2016 event. It was created by couturier Rudolf Ramseyer from fabric I eco dyed at his request, supplied by Ruche Fabrics.

Miss Universe Australia collaborative project

  

After sharing this exciting news on my personal Facebook page I feel it is now time to go public! I have been approached by couturier Rudolf Ramseyer to collaborate with him on the dress for Tasmania’s entrant in Miss Universe Australia. He has asked me to eco dye several metres of silk chiffon (sourced from Ruche Fabrics – http://ruchefabrics.com.au), which he will then make into a one-off creation that will reflect the colours of our beautiful state. I am absolutely thrilled to be asked, as you can imagine! To find out more about Rudolf, please visit his website – http://rudolfcouture.com
