The Great Silhouette Dress
Elements Of Design.
Barnett Newman knew the power of a line. A few years ago his 1961 portrait, Black Fire I, sold for over $84,000,000. It’s a simple, elegant piece.
Vertical lines equate to height, stability and power.
Up and down.
Head to toe.
That’s where you want them looking.
You know this, of course.
The story of this dress is its simple, elemental design. Mechanics that have worked for courtiers (and painters) for centuries. A fit and flare that flows through and narrows the hips creating a silhouette that follows the body’s curves. No waistline. Head to toe vertical lines add to your length, making you look $84,000,000 taller.
It isn’t science but it’s close.
