If the Sun and Moon should ever doubt, they’d immediately go out. ~ William Blake
The moon is one of the most beautiful and persistent gifts of living on the Earth. No matter where you go in the world, no matter who you talk to, everyone knows the moon. We all look to it to mark the waning and waxing of time. So it’s no surprise that she used the moon as the core component of this sculptural dress she designed. What makes the dress more interesting is that the moon rotates. The photos don’t show a very delicate framework of crisscrossing silver wires around the moon—it’s gorgeous. So we have Eshi’s flowers, her wispy feathers and now the moon. What’s next?
She includes this gorgeous hair/headpiece combo with the outfit with a smaller version of the moon. I wear the dress with a delicate skin from Brendon Papp, who always adorns my Eshi looks for some reason. I think the otherworldly delicacy of these skins offsets Eshi’s work well. We don’t need a brazen look; we need something much more fragile.
The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon. ~ Jean Ingelow
