In just a few short hours the world will be rushing to the theaters for the release of Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie. I have read all of the book and I cant wait for the new movie to come out. One of the things that I am seriously excited about is the amazing dress created as Katniss’s wedding dress.
According to the interview from the NYTimes “For her grand entrance to the 75th Hunger Games kickoff, Katniss dons a fantasy wedding dress by the Jakartan designer Tex Saverio — the one she might have worn had her nuptials to Peeta not been quashed by the games.
“I wanted to have a subliminal feel of flames and feathers to keep her the Girl on Fire while also representing the Mockingjay,” Ms. Summerville said. Mr. Saverio’s froth of layered organza features a flame-inspired silver corset and fabric peacock feathers sprouting at the waist. As Katniss twirls, the gown erupts, and an iridescent Mockingjay dress rises from the ash. Using images of a mockingbird, blue jay, pheasant and peacock, Ms. Summerville worked with an illustrator and graphic designer to create patterns of feathers and wings, which she then had printed on chiffon and built into the Mockingjay dress.”
This amazing creation completely blows me away. The attention to detail and and amazing draping of the dress is what truly makes this gown perfect for the capitol.
Go and see Hunger Games: Catching Fire to see this amazing dress in action!
