This girl's dress was created by clothing designer Gregory Parkinson, known for his decorative ability and his distinctive use of color and patterns. Over the past two decades, this English-born, Californian native has crafted a look that has a global ethnic feel with West Coast style that is all his own. The design was influenced by Adriaen Coorte's painting Wild Strawberries in a Wan Li Bowl, from 1704 in LACMA's permanent collection which has been reinterpreted and silkscreened on the front of the dress.
The dress was hand-dyed and silkscreened for WEAR LACMA, an art and fashion project featuring small-run pieces created by some of Los Angeles's top designers and inspired by the museum's permanent collection or buildings. The project was sponsored by LACMA's Director's Circle.
This dress is exclusive to LACMA and is sized for children as a short tunic or dress and looks great when worn with leggings.
