The dress, titled Eunoia which means ‘beautiful thought’, was inspired by the creative process and from where it derives.
“The ancient greeks believed inspiration came from the muses and artists were merely vessels acting on behalf of the gods. Today we have a very different interpretation of where ideas come from, heavily placed on the artist’s personal ego. This dress is meant to represent ideas given from a divine source. Complex in design and yet simple in silhouette, she walks in as though from a dream~ profound and enlightened.”
– Kyle Nylund, Designer
