Fabric-Free Two-piece Beaded and Sequin Fringe Ensemble
2003 partial remake 2007
This provocative duet is the first completely fabric free designs we ever created starting in 2003. It is made entirely from more than 25,000 beads and sequins, and took five people eight months to complete.
The base of this design is made from Czech glass bugle beads, Japanese silver-lined pony and crow glass beads and Austrian Swarovski crystal beads. The sequin panels we updated in 2007 by hand sewing thousands of additional silver-lined beads to give it more sparkle. The one-of-a-kind accessories and the front of the top, I created with very rare and expensive vintage Swarovski crystal beads.
