Red Dress: "Solo"
Solo is designed for the Women’s Heart Disease Campaign.
Red poppy and spider lily inspired the dress Solo. Although both flowers are associated with death and loneliness in cultures and legends, their beauty and stories express a sense of energy, strength, and courage.
Instead of focusing on the physical suffering of the heart disease patients, Solo is meant to illustrate the inner feelings of particular patients. These patients may have experienced some sort of social isolation because they cannot enjoy simple tasks such as jumping, running, or even laughing emotionally with friends and family.
Such misfortune can breed the desire and battles for liberation from the physical barriers in the patients. Thereby, Solo is designed to be suitable for ballroom dances. It can be an instrument for a taste of freedom and happiness through swirling the layers of organza and strands of bells.
