The dressmaker who made this bizarrely sexy baby white dress says it was all made with “a special black thread.”
The woman, whose name we don’t know, told Vice News that the dress, made of black fabric, was the result of a business deal.
The dress is available for sale on Etsy for $150 and is available to be made in black and white, but she says the dress was inspired by her mother.
“I have a really beautiful mother, she’s black, and I wanted to wear the same black,” the woman said.
“But in black.
She had it made in white, so I thought, ‘This is a perfect way to dress up a black woman.'”
The dress, which was made by Italian fashion house Piazza Lola, is made out of “black fabric, which I thought was really nice and soft,” the dressmaker said.
We spoke to her a few weeks ago and she said she was inspired to make a dress out of the same fabric she grew up wearing, which is “really pretty” but is “a little bit weird for a baby.”
