The Story

She told me I was born at midnight. I guess that means I'm predisposed to being a night owl, which has turned out to be pretty accurate.

I can't seem to sit still. I'm always moving, travelling, searching and finding and searching some more. Most of my friends think it's funny that I love to visit new cities - at night. Never in the daytime. I think the night is when the city lets its hair down, takes off its tie, kicks off its shoes.

The people who move around after the shops close, those are my people. They dress differently - proudly - and sing out loud and make up the words they can't remember.

My dress? Oh, she made it for me. I know, right? She said she wanted me to tell her stories from all of the places I've been and she was going to stitch those into this dress. I think she nailed it.

Understanding Limited Series

Each work in Dolan Geiman’s portfolio is unique and hand-crafted. Some are one-of-a-kind pieces while others are reiterations of a recurring theme, denoted as Limited Series throughout the site.

Each piece in a Limited Series is created with a inimitable collection of found materials so that no two are exactly alike. Iterations will vary slightly in color, pattern, typography and frame; each is crafted in a limited quantity and without a predetermined edition numbering.
