The Story Behind This Marvelous Dress by Christina Liedtke
Inspired by the deep rooted history of Detroit, Michigan, two Detroit artists, Christina Liedtke, Founder and Creative Director of Christiana J. Paul and Alex Fedirko, nationally known Landscape Painter, designed a hand painted couture gown for the Detroit Historical Society Fashion Exhibition 2015 - 2016.
Through thoughtful exploration, the structure of the gown, hand paintings, and waistline holistically come together developing an iconic viewpoint that symbolizes Detroit’s history and journey in timelessness and beauty.
“Detroit’s rich history and architecture was the inspiration for the gown, representing structure, craftsmanship, and elegance. This gown inspires the alchemy of the revitalization efforts of Detroit through fashion.” – Christina Liedtke
