This is a sneak peek, the dress is still in production. In the photo is Valérie Dumaine herself taking a selfie to send me by email. This dress will be sold as early as January 2013, its a co-creation with brilliant Montreal based designer Valérie Dumaine.
A friendship turned into a fun collaboration making this wonderful silk dress hand made in Montreal, designed to raise awareness on the planet we live in. The image is under Creative Commons and comes from of course, my main inspiration lately, NASA Goddard's flickr account.
