Dress: Origami Gown in Fellini Couture
Jewelry: XENIA Set in Donna Flora
Hair: Tanya (Blonde Pack) in TRUTH
Pose: Chris 6 in Posies

This newest creation from Joy Fellini is another artistic wonder! This gown captures perfectly the feeling of Origami Art, which is the Japanese folk art of folding paper, started in the 17th century. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be Origami.
This gown is inspired by a Real Life creation originally designed by Christian Dior. You have to see this gown up close to truly appreciate its magnificence. The angles, the embroidered textures, and the Eifel Tower itself appears on two panels of the gown. And this would also make a lovely, unique wedding gown! The flowered hair adornment is added and the look is unlike anything I have seen yet in Second Life fashion! Congratulations, Joy! (by: Carilynn Ohare)
