Note

  • Display Note: The fabric was hand embroidered in Spain and took 8 hours, a full days work to complete 10cm/ 4 sq. in. of embroidery. This dress was featured as part of a Spanish design exhibition, to represent the culture of Valencia and Spain. It was formally presented to the Texas Fashion Collection by the designer at an event held at the Cohn Dennan Art Gallery on March 1, 2012 to commemorate the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge opening. Proceeds from the event benefit the Dallas-Valencia Sister City fund, as the bridge was designed after a bridge in Valencia, Spain.
