For Sansa’s wedding dress the designer Michele Clapton wanted to have an embroidered band that wrapped around which symbolistically told Sansa’s life from the Tully and Stark beginnings to the entanglement with the Lannisters.
Her story starts at her lower back where the Tully fish and Stark Direwolf entwine as we move round to the front the Lannister Lion is becoming dominant over the Direwolf and at the back neck the Lions head is stamped onto Sansa. The dress colour was still very much Sansa Stark and the embroidery had pale golden tones but woven through the story are ripe red pomegranates, the red colour symbolising the growing Lannister influence over her.

More of Michelle Carragher’s gorgeous work. I want to be this good.
Good god, y’all. That’s some impressive creativity, from conception to execution.
Shark Finning is cruel beyond belief and it’s destroying the ecosystem. The sharks are caught, their fins are cut off, and the sharks are thrown back into the water to slowly drown to death in pain and agony on the ocean floor. The main driver behind this is the highly prized dish, Shark Fin Soup. The soup is very expensive and this makes the shark fins very valuable. As a result, many shark species have decreased by over 90% in the past 15 years. Sharks are the regulators of the populations of all the other organisms in the food chain below them and without the sharks, the populations of those organisms will explode and resources will be overused and potentially depleted. The best way to stop this cruelty is by cutting the industry at it’s source by decreasing and hopefully eliminating the demand for Shark Fin Soup.
