Lengthy Project

How do you wear a 13-foot dress? By standing on a ladder.
Kristen Bach ’03, a graduate of the art program, was commissioned to design and construct a 13-foot dress for Kevin Barnes, the lead singer of an American indie pop band known as Of Montreal.
Barnes has been wearing the dress on the band’s latest tour. He stands on a ladder to extend his height, allowing the full length of the dress to be exposed. Barnes and the dress appeared on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien on April 12.
Bach manages R. Wood pottery studio and is a freelance designer in Athens, Ga., where the band Of Montreal is based.
