The designer posted a picture of it on Instagram on July 16, 2015. (archived) She mentions that the one pictured is for a project but that she'll be making a second one for the shop (her items are handmade one-offs).
One or the other (if a second was ever made) was worn by a man named Michel Madie at Burning Man in 2015. (source)
Michel Madie is a NY real estate mogul. Here's a picture of the man not in costume:
