Sarah Fox: Behind the Necklace
There Was Bleach—But it Didn’t Come in Contact with Hair.
“All of the lace pieces are hand-dyed. They’re dipped a couple of times—first in grey to get that gradient, and then in black after they’ve dried. It’s important for them to dry because the dye travels differently if they’re wet. Some of them are triple dipped in bleach to really bring back the white. It’s a fun process, and it’s pretty hard to get a hundred that look the same. But I think that’s part of it, too. It’s hard to get away from this idea that you want them all to look identical, but that’s just not possible. Each person is going to get a slightly different fade, but what was important to me was that each has the dark, the light, and the middle.”
