Designer Sylvie Facon’s Hommage à Arras is a Wearable Tribute

The detail in this dress by Sylvie Facon is lovely. We are super into the lion shoulder detail! via My Modern Met:

At first glance, the fanciful frock looks like a fantastical work of fiction. However, look closely, and you’ll discover it actually features factual depictions of Arras’ artistic and architectural treasures.

On the bust, you’ll find the Flemish-inspired façades that line its Baroque town square. The Angels of Saudemont, a series of gilded Medieval statues, are perched on the hips, while the Lion of Arras, a symbolic sculpture from the town’s belfry, are situated on the shoulders. In addition to these specific landmarks and recognizable sites, the gown also incorporates the little details that make Arras so special, from its pavement to its plants.
