The Working Proof: tracciamenti - Dress #30
I really love this new print by tracciamenti, an Italian artist who has been working with the dress as a subject for several years. Dress #30 is about more than fashion, however - it was inspired by an article that she read about the detailing and embellishments of haute couture dresses, and the women in Asia who are employed to complete the work. It makes me wonder about the people behind the hands that make each piece - the hundreds and even thousands of hours that are spent crafting all of the laborious details.
15% of each print sold will be donated to Teach For America. Read our interview with tracciamenti here, and buy the print here.
