I am knee deep in sparkles and Lycra and fur for Galactic Girl (more on that soon), but spent some time this week draping a dress for my friend Zach’s dance film. It will be shot this weekend in Toronto and I hope the tall, long-limbed dancer fits into this well! She will be shot in the black knit jersey dress against a black background and I am hoping the twisting and gathering on the dress provide some nice texture and depth.
