A Library of Dresses

French fashion designer Sylvie Facon designs and sews gorgeous high fashion dresses. Each dress is one of a kind, painstakingly hand-painted, delicately embroidered, and accented with beads, baubles, and lace. They are truly romantic and beyond beautiful!

As an unexpected decorative element, Facon incorporates antique book spines in some of her dresses. The spines of several books are sewn together to create the contour of the dress’ bodice, which visually replicates books on a library shelf. Delicate gold foil stamped typography and filigrees add graphic detail to the bodice. Every dress in Facon’s collection is not only a unique piece of art, but it can also be called literary works of art.

If you love looking at beautiful dresses as much as I do, you may want to revisit Hannah’s “Paper Dresses” blog post from this past June.
