Luke Friend

Japanese Inspired Evening Gown

Luke created an elegant evening dress, taking inspiration from the features of the traditional Japanese kimono.

Embroidered cranes feature on the front and back of the gown and cherry blossoms adorn the Boro patchwork belt, which is comprised of hand-dyed remnants using traditional Shibori dyeing techniques. Geometric shapes feature strongly in Luke’s design and he has carefully implemented a pattern to create his highly original piece.
