Hi

Size meant weight was an issue so used Acrylic with UV protection.

I had one in like this a year or so back. It was already framed brilliantly by a very posh London gallery in a double sided frame. It even had an ancient piece of Chinese wood for the garment to hang from. Looked a million dollars and the client wanted me to re-frame it so it was about six inches smaller both ways. Would have absolutely ruined the look of the piece and I wasn't 100% confident I could match the high standards of the original job. In the end i think the price put him off - especially when he only wanted it done so it would fit on a particular wall. Put it on a different wall, job done!
