The concept of Lover's Eye is based on the 18th century jewelry that aristocratic Englishmen and women often wore. The lover's eye was a miniature portrait depicting their lover. Due to the fact that only one eye is revealed, the subject's identity is kept a secret. My muse for this project is from the point of view of a secret mistress and the mystery that surrounds their relationship. The purpose of the garment is to embody the intimately longing yet eerie passion she has for her lover, which is represented through the surrealist silhouette of the garment.

"We loved with a love that was more than love...with a love that the winged seraphs of heaven coveted her and me"
-Edgar Allen Poe
