'The Dress Project' is a clever innovation by the Brooklyn folk collective Fort Makers, who have created wearable art in their latest venture. They wanted to combine art and fashion in a literal sense, and thought hand-painted dresses were the best way to go about it.
The dresses by the Fort Makers were formed from button-down shirt-dresses. The idea for them was to convey "a sense of all-American style."
Implications - Personally, I wouldn't be ashamed to wear one of these funky DIY shirt projects. They may not be everyone's style, but they speak to me and I love the fact that they're hand painted. The world needs more people willing to just start brand-new fashion trends from their garages. Who knows where the next Marc Jacobs will be found?
