Little Black Dress is a photography showcase of models fully “clothed” in painted-on little black dresses. A collaboration between body painter Sammi Lim and photographer Shahril Saifol, this project seeks to subtly introduce Malaysians to body painting and remove prejudices against nudity in art.

Sammi Lim has trained as a body painter in New York and exhibited twice in the city, whereas Shahril Saifol (also known as the man behind Light Show Photography) specialises in portraits, does photoshoots for various magazines and owns his own studio. The duo hopes this project will serve as a mind-bending trompe l’oeil (trick of the eye) that is both awe-inspiring and liberating.
