The Divorce Dress is a collection of candid stories about relationship endings from around the globe by Kay Hansen and Georgia Cantando. Two women, one dress, and a mission...redefine divorce and loosen stigmas through photography, poetry, and prose!

Here’s what we do. We put you in the dress and listen to your stories about relationships... all relationships. You don’t need to be divorced to be in the dress. We listen to people who are still married, never married, who are children of divorce, divorced, even those who have never been in a relationship.

So far The Divorce Dress has traveled across the US, Canada and Central America. Our team, Kay Hansen and Georgia Cantando, have set our sights on Europe, Asia, and Africa to add more global perspectives.

"A decade ago, Kay Hansen found her husband’s ex-wife’s wedding dress in her closet, and she didn’t know what to do with it. It hung there for two years—rather annoyingly in the way, considering that she saw it each time she needed a shirt or pair of shoes. The ex-wife didn’t want it back, so her fiancé suggested eBay, since it was, after all, very expensive. But they were about to find more practical use."
