Marigold dress

Marigold dress
Photo Description: The marigold washing up glove is an iconic symbol associated with cleaning. By using this statement I created a life sized wedding gown made entirely from the gloves, including embroidery roses and a lengthy train. The significance of the marigold dress represents society's expectation of women to marry into a stereotypical house wife role, addressing the universal inequality of females in a still very patriarchal world.
