This piece was inspired by Marianne Williamson and her SisterGiant movement aimed at getting more women into politics. She tells the story of the girl in the patchwork dress: all the girls were getting expensive dresses to impress the Prince, one girl did not have the resources to make a gown, she picked up the scraps the girls left off their tables. She went to the ball and saw the other girls beautiful dresses, she was embarrassed, so she hid in a closet. Prince had not found his bride, he saw the material of out the door, patchwork, he danced with her and he found her interesting and made her his bride. This blazer tells that story made from items cast aside and worn to Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress Anniversary Party.
