Getting in the Habit

My extremely talented sister-in-law is a fashion-designer and boutique proprietor in Chicago, IL. Lindsey is a designer under the label Superficial Inc., and operates Habit, a design collective on Division street specializing in up-and-coming designers. Lindsey sent me one of the couture pieces from her spring lineup and asked me to provide some photography. The dress is a hand-stiched garment, inspired by the Culver House by Dirk Denison Architects. It features a detachable train, shown in the third image. This piece sold at auction last month at the Mies Van Der Rohe event, but Lindsey obtained permission from the owner to have the dress sent down to me for a few days. Amy Lynn Larwig did a stellar job on Crystal's makeup, and we were able to produce some effective fashion images for my dear sis.
