Walker Art Gallery Hair Dress

Standing on the first floor of the Walker Art Gallery is this Dress Designed and created by Liverpool Designers Thelma Madine (known for Big Fat Gypsy Wedding) and Ryan Edwards. The dress was created using 250 metres of Hair extensions and was created by Thelma's work business. Ryan Edwards then sprayed and dyed the dress to get the colours which it looks like now. The whole point of this dress is to highlight an important issue. The use of hair extensions is popular in today's but where does the hair come from? They do not know exactly where the hair came from to create this dress so are using this to highlight whether the hair was taken unethically in places such as India and eastern Europe.
