As You Like It
This dress is a historically inspired wedding dress. My production of As You Like It was set in the 1750's. This was the time period of Marie Antoinettes childhood, in which she (according to lore) was proposed to by the young Wolfgang Mozart. This playground wedding from the 1750's mirrored the babes in the wood marriage of Rosalind and Orlando. Therefore, my designs were informed by the architecture and flora of Marie Antoinettes childhood holiday home, Schonbrunn (her babes in the wood like space of freedom) where she met Mozart. Orlando's outfir ofsets the yellow undertones in a contrasting lilac, which is inspired by the lilac suit that was goven to him as a gift for performing for the Hapsburg clan.
