As a unique international conservation organization LCF infuses art into all aspects of its mission…including couture! LCF founder Penelope Bodry Sanders designed this dress for the 2013 ICONCEPT runway event. ICONCEPT benefits Art Center Sarasota. It invites local artists to create amazing outfits using non-traditional materials and innovative concepts to walk the runway in a spectacular show.
The skirt used 3 yards of this custom designed and printed fabric! The ensemble below features an original design embroidered on a vintage silk blouse, paired with an embellished vintage silk skirt. The hand embroidery was done by Ginny Fineberg, and has approximately 75,000 stitches!
ICONCEPT is a fund-raising event to benefit Art Center Sarasota. The funds raised help to ensure that the community has accessible and diverse visual arts opportunities and cultural programs available as part of
a thriving arts industry that boosts the economy and well-being of people in Sarasota. See more great pictures of the event here: http://www.artsarasota.org/iconcept2013
