My fashion design philosophy is simple. I enjoy designing for women who look for straightforward uncomplicated fashion with a special detail. They want garments that stand out because of their workmanship and design elements. I focus on dresses as I like how comfortable and versatile they are!
You have already seen many examples of my work. I like sewing patterns and prints. I like to alter these through the use of gathers, pleats, and cutouts. I like investigating volume and playing with various silhouettes.
Here is an example of a dress that stands out because of sculptural elements I added. While the fabric is lovely on its own - a very subtle animal print in shiny silver - the main draw are pleats on the front and in the back and in the sleeves.
Let's take a closer look!
My favorite aspect of this dress are its sleeves. As with the top and back, I opened up the pattern and inserted pleats. These pleats sit comfortably on the art while adding a visual interest.
As I said earlier, dresses are my passion and this one is quickly becoming one of my favorites!
