About the dress:

"The dragon is the symbol of tradition in China. China shows its greatness and tradition in the terracotta warriors with armour like a dragon and the scales of a butterfly. At a distance, the 8,000 soldiers appear as a homogeneous surface with different scales. I built a protective, layered-skin with more than 8,000 leather scales which I made individually and placed on the body to simultaneously display beauty, strength and vulnerability - qualities of a 21st century woman." - Luca Beke, Fashion Designer
