kicky layers of fluff and frivolity

Just over 4 years I ago, I had presented my thesis and graduated from art school and 5 years ago, I was in the midst of deciphering what and how I was going to express this grand idea.

My thesis centered around the idea of the Fruit of the Spirit – these virtues that all people strive for in life.  Could these ideas be expressed in garment form or were they too intangible?

There are a total of nine virtues are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Whether you have a spiritual faith or not, many of these virtues are what you hope other people have.

I will stand by while the pieces fall together

I chose 3 of these virtues, because 9 months of work and study would not give me 9 dresses.  I wasn’t that crazy even if there were a few times where I felt at the end of my tether.

The 3 virtues that I landed on were the ones that spoke to me the most: Love, Patience and Self-Control.

I hope to share with ya’ll over the next 4 weeks about each dress and what I plan on doing after this review.
