The Bride

'The Bride' designed by Aukje Boonstra, image by Ben Winwood The Bride ‘s outfit is made of natural dyed linen and silk shirts, silk scarfs, doily’s and a piece of a discarded bridal dress. The piece of the bride’s dress inspired me to start this work. All off the best pieces had been cut off by previous owners. With the skirt and sleeve cut off left me with the top with one sleeve. So I started to add on to that after I dyed several pieces of clothing I wanted to work with rose leaves and blackwood leaves with added metals such as copper and iron. The dress is embellished with hand stitching and vintage buttons out of my collection
