When I was first approached to create a dress made from the glass of Baileys Irish Cream bottles, I was inspired by the challenge of doing something that had never been done before. The dress took 125 hours and a team of skilled workers to create. I'm excited for my audience to see the craftsmanship in person.
Back in the early 70s, Ryerson Polytechnical Institute was Canada's incubator for the practical arts: journalism, radio, television, layout, design, fashion, theatre and photography. I can't remember anything I wrote, but I do remember the photographs. They were outstanding -- cutting edge. None more so than those that came from the camera of Yuri Dojc.
