History of "the Dress"
David first tried the dress on when shopping with Angie. There was a 'unique' men's clothing store where they sold various items for men, including….dresses.
Passing by one time, they were captivated by the site of this controversial and eccentric piece of clothing.
Since they were looking for an outrageous new image for David to promote not only his personality, but his career as well, this dress seemed like a promotional object.
David did not intend to promote that he was 'gay', if so. He only wished to create a distinctive image for himself so that others would be astonished, and he would get the attention he deserved.
She encouraged him to try one on as he would look 'brilliant' in one of them. Of course, David experimented and looked fabulous in the dress - the 'man's dress', which made everything less controversial for him to deal with.
