What goes into making the finale dress for a fashion show? In the case of Phillip Lim’s Picasso-inspired layered get-up for 3.1 Phillip Lim, five dress makers, five days and a whole lot of inspiration. And that’s not to mention the abundance of lace, crystals and chiffon. Before Karlie Kloss treated the dress to her swaying ballerina walk on the spring 2010 runway, Phillip Lim had to conceptualize the frock, from the minimalism and emptiness of recession scarcity to the thriving and thrashing of a Picasso painting. Luckily for us, he captured the process in a video.
