“Cilicium” by Marie Bannerot McInerney. This dress is made of metallic silk organza and horsehair. The black horsehair is stitched into the organza fabric at regular intervals creating a new textile. The stitches sit agains the front surface while a length of horsehair floats in the interior (against the body). The coloration of the dress ombres downward (from dark to light) as the black horsehair is replaced by white horsehair.
