What a dream...
When ace&jig reached out about this collaboration, I literally danced around the studio. I can't think of a brand I love more, and their proposal seemed like the most fun project ever. I was able to hand paint 25 dresses for them, and there were no rules. Meaning, each one is a little different from the next, making them all like wearable paintings. They explode with color and pattern, and will be a great addition to any wardrobe for ever and ever.
ace&jig's textiles are all handwoven in India, making them so unique and luxurious. I have a growing collection of their pieces and they wash and wear so well. These dresses are no different! I used a light textile paint that was heat set and washed / tumble dried before we sent it out. They're super soft and machine washable! I even experimented with some blingy gold foil that is pretty AMAZING. It is sooooooo metallic, and it's washable too!
Here are some shots behind the scenes as I painted them. It was a heavenly period where I was covered in paint head to toe – my favorite state. :)
Head to ace&jig to check them out and scoop one up! They hit their site on Friday July 3 at 12 EST. There's only 25, so goooooo!
