Rachel Wright of Mobile, AL creates some interesting repurposed clothing. (Her Etsy shop is called Toolgrrl Designs.) The dresses she created for her series, The Dream Anatomy, are intriguing and beautiful.

The Dream Anatomy series explore these imagined realms inside the body. Because these garments are meant to be worn, the boundary between the internal and the external is blurred. The invisible is made visible: wear your inside on the outside. By using women’s slips and nighties, articles that were not originally intended for public life, I am playiing with the line between the public and the private arenas.

    Neat! These remind me of the cover of Florence + the Machine’s album “Lungs.” If you haven’t seen (or heard) it, I think you’d be interested.
