'The Painted Gown' was created by artist Jacob Blum and designer Emily Sifrit. The initial conversation included many concepts, a few puzzling questions, laughs, and a hope that the outcome would be untouchable.
Emily'srequest was that Jacob create a painting, completely of his own vision on a piece of canvas. Her next request... was for a leap of faith. For Jacob to allow her to create a gown, completely of her own vision, out of his painting.
There were moments of great curiosity...
Jacob: 'This can't be what she meant.. how is someone going to wear this...'
Emily: 'He put his heart into this masterpiece how can I possibly cut it?!... and oh yes, how IS someone going to wear it...'
The outcome is one hundred percent original, one of a kind, and full of inspired moments.
One of the best comments made during the first conversation, Jacob: 'Well we can't just do this once.'
Number two in the series hangs on his wall as we speak.
