The Fashionfish : TUD II - That Unforgettable Dress

"Open here I flung the shutter" - by Dita

Rem from Empyreal Dreams told D a little after New Years that the second of the dresses in the series (Three unique pieces in total) would be ready soon.

Ourfish really do feel most privileged to work in collaboration.*
 *In the sense that an image produced wearing his dress alongside some other of my own personal choices for styling, is a collaboration between model and designer.

Of these series of photos, D says the following :
I've kept the shots of the dress true to exactly as it would appear in world without any photoshop jiggery pokery - Just windlight setting adjustments and croppage in order to try and show how detailed the dress already is.

The Raven Dress I

The Raven (Dress) is the accompaniment of the Exhibition at Empyreal dreams on a poem by Edgar Allan Poe of same title. For New Years, I had reviewed the first of these dresses which was white and romantically seemed to engage a feeling of the hope of love within the poem. 
The Raven Dress IV
This black version, with its victorianesque feel perhaps most embodies its mourning aspect. Set amongst dark fading satin panels - shifting imagery, numbers and quotes flicker in and out of the dress against the ticking clocks which seem to mark out the passage of time. The dress is complete of its own accord with shoes, belts (with working clocks), skirts (and separate versions with/without lag for more user friendliness) and millinery.

The rest of the styling notes is as follows
