“DOTS were perfect fit for Kreatia. Very contemporary, highly technological design was inspired by vibrant colors and shape of the candies. The fabric was created by cutting, pasting and sewing pieces of packaging onto the cotton. What a combination : the square shape of the candy box and beauty of female body.”
I made this dress late 2008, was invited by AIBI and Tootsie to participate in the event fundraiser for Spina Bifida Association “Sweet Chic” at the MCA.
