Leafs - Evening Gown
Collection: Back To Roots
Stunning soft gold and black evening gown design redesigned from an original vintage 1960 white wedding dress skirt part and combined with a black steel boned corset. The skirt is hand dyed in shades of soft metallic gold and exists out of 2 parts; a long pencil skirt and a 'dramatic' detachable long over-skirt train which is wrapped around the waist underneath the corset and closes on the back with in a satin bow. The skirt is hand embellished with hundreds of hand drawn and hand cut black faux leather leafs which give an unique 3D effect. The boned black cotton corset is also hand embellished with the same hand drawn and hand cut black faux leather leafs and decorated with glass beads in 'earth' colours.

The Ingeborg Steenhorst ‘Back To Roots’ fashion & art collection encourages you to think about the importance of protecting trees on Earth. The message that humanity is doomed as the primary forests that purify the air disappear is artfully but very directly woven in the collection. We take for granted the most precious components of our biosphere, which are fundamental to life. Taking care of trees is taking care of our children, our children’s future and ourselves. A tree converts our foul air, our carbon dioxide (CO2), into oxygen for ‘carbohydrates’, sugar-like substances, which are the basic building blocks of the wood of the tree itself and us to breathe.
And last but not least...we involve YOU in our quest to protect nature and wild life by donating a 5% percentage from your purchase at our webshop in random order to Greenpeace, WWFnl and the Stand For Trees foundation.
