party in a dress

party dress‘ by dana and karla karwas is a traveling show that is ‘part living architecture,
part fashion‘. the performance is composed of a dress worn by 5 women that functions
as a pavilion  – ‘seamlessly injecting architecture into fashion by using the body as space

…with room for spectators beneath the fabric, party dress flirts with traditional concepts of
public and private space while adding sparkling wit to the conversation between fashion

and architecture. party dress works across multiple scales and environments, unraveling conventional notions of space, materiality, and temporality.‘
