These lovely pieces of clothing with all their frills, pleats and waves have actually been carved out of hard rock by Scottish sculptor Alasdair Thomson.
Titled ‘The Identity Collection,” each stunning dress in this project is named after a woman, which makes the name of this fashion-based sculpture series extremely fitting.
To complete the project, Thomson asked his friends and family to donate garments that he later used as models. “The identity of the person who contributed the garment is captured in the stonework,” he said. “We seek identity in what we wear. It identifies us with a particular group and influences the way people see us.”
The collection has already been displayed in London and New York, and is due to be exhibited in Hong Kong next week.
