A story that hits neither light nor dark, this tells a tale of life’s confounding middle. I’ll wear what I wear as a reflection of my being, but what I am can not be transmitted through mere clothing. Robbed in ethereal gowns, this takes us from the simplicity of all white, to garments laced with gold and trimmed in fur.
