Meningitis Statement Dress

This is the most heart felt project I have ever done. Along with my jewelry sponsor and friend, Laurie Elyse we came up with the idea of doing an extra special fundraising project for a meningitis fundraiser. While organized the solicitation of photos and stories through organizations such as the National Meningitis Association and the Meningitis Foundation of America, Laurie spearheaded the design and construction of the dress.

The overskirt of the dress is composed of photos and stories of those affected with meningococcal disease. The photos were laminated and enclosed in industrial plastic. The dress is luxurious jersey knit which was designed to be worn without the over skirt for an occasion.  The over skirt was meant to be a memorial piece “In memory of”. 

The dress and complimentary jewelry was auctioned for World Meningitis Day at the Give Kids A Shot Gala in New York City.
