blue white chic + eastern influence

 

Dreaming:: Fashion designer Tory Burch in her Southampton estate. I love the blue greyish white tones with red accents combined with eastern motifs.

Style revealed the incredible skill involved in creating these gowns.

One  extraordinary dress featured layer upon layer of organza, embroidered with butterflies and birds, the whole lot wrapped in a tulle cage scrolled with crepe piping. According to the notes, it took 500 hours of hand-rolling to produce the piping in just one dress. One roller apparently developed carpal tunnel syndrome during the production of the Amoxil online usa collection. There were plenty more such examples of artisanal effort ~ it took 850 hours to embroider an organza jacket and skirt.

The analogy the designers employed was a garden, where you see the grace and delicacy, but you never smell the gardener’s sweat. “Couture has to be magical,” insisted Piccioli, and that clearly included the power to make the graft disappear.

Valentino Spring 2013

 

Delicate embroidery, intricate beading and brocade ~ the valentino spring collection was full of creations inspired by memories of Buy Celebrex Rome.

Think of raven-haired, voluptuous “passionatas” in their slips and devout Catholic ladies on their way to mass—and then lay them aside for a second. Sarah Mower, Vogue
