The design is called Metamorphosis since it is a transformation. The metamorphosis is an irreversible transformation like this dress; from comic to clothing it’s possible, but impossible to reverse it. I created this design with my brother's old comics. My brother died a year before I designed this dress, I did it to honor his memory and create something that was important to me with something that was important to him, and my brother was a fan of comics.

Sewing this dress with paper made me realize that unconventional pieces provide me with creative and self-improvement stimuli.
