Savage Beauty Day 3b

"Bumster" skirt, Highland Rape, autumn/winter 1995-96
Black silk [reproduction from original pattern]

"[With 'bumsters,'] I wanted to elongate the body, not just show the bum.  To me, that part of the body - not so much the buttocks, but the bottom of the spine - that's the most erotic part of anyone's body, man or woman."*

What can I say?  It's hump day!
