Becoming, 2021


“The planets and stars aligned. As many new endeavors begin, Edward and I were introduced on Instagram. I had admired his work for some time and he reached out with an idea for a collaboration. I was so excited! It really was something straight from the universe because when I learned more about Edward’s ideas, I realized I had already started on a dress that felt in line with his virtual and textural integration approach. I kept developing the initial dress idea into a few more and here we are.” Responding to a series of imaginary fantasy-world renders created by Edward, Edwin has created six dresses united in their design approach and which will ultimately be photographed within these imagined settings. Mohney explores new techniques by manipulating pleats with rigid boning. The overall effect creates a swirling form around the body.
