Toge, which is Japanese for thorn, is a wedding dress but it’s certainly not an ordinary one! Its fifteen colors are vibrant and wild, much more similar to a rainbow than to a traditional white wedding dress. But that’s not the only thing that makes Toge unique. The piece is composed of 500 painted metal spheres with protruding needles made of piano wire. These spheres were created to be assembled freely, therefore, they can be used to fulfill your very own art fantasies with vibrant and wild sculptures.
Moureaux’s inspiration for her thorn spheres was a blend of the colorful carbon-based branches that she put on display last year and a recent dandelion wall-decal she had worked on. The combination of bright colors and balls that look like dandelion seed petals truly gives this dress a fairy-tale feel.
Moureax is very excited about Toge and believes that it is only the beginning. We’ll all have to wait for next year’s show to see what Moureax has in store for us next!
