Soft fluffy clouds: ethereal, and white. Sheer spheres of influence. I can't tell for sure but it looks like these dresses were made by pulling apart fine cotton knit, like ribbed tees. Something like what I've been making, here at home. A passage of ideas, between women.. something so primitive, we could be maidens fair, weaving in a tower in a castle in a fairy tale.
Let's see if I can explain.
I first saw this effect on my friend Stephanie, of Style Odyssey, at an art launch in Hollywood, Florida ('we are all connected'). She had learned how to do it on 'childhood flames', described the process to me, and then I tried it ('a cinderella story').
Or, perhaps not. Perhaps they're made from angels' wings, sprinkled with fairy dust.
I am paralyzed with indecision: I've got too many shots from this collection at last week's Graduation Fashion Week gala event, AND I won't know who designed it until I can speak with one of the organisers tomorrow. So I'm going to just close my eyes and pick a few, because Mr. Dot has been plaintively requesting English strawberries with Greek yogurt and honey, and I've been ignoring him, holding my breath and hoping my wonky cord doesn't crash my laptop. Again.
So I'm going to just show you some now, and some later. But please do click thru on the coloured words, the back story will reveal itself. I hope.
