Avalanche I – By Vivienne Riggio
Folds of snowy white fabric glide down the drifts of this billowy gown. Creating a tension between lightness and weight, permanence and fluidity, Riggio’s “Avalanche I” uses a unique approach to tailoring and fabrication. Mixing pure color with rough use of conventionally delicate materials, Riggio evokes a mood so tangible that one can almost sense the presence of an unseen wearer.
