“This is Not a Dream” is a collection inspired by the round organic shapes of clouds and the romantic drapery of Hellenistic art. Shown in the hand-framed bustier, with floating long fringe detail, worn over a pale blue chiton-inspired blouse.
The classic long gloves have 80 hand applied organza circles with fringe framing a rounded jacquard pattern.
This dreamy look was inspired by the colors of the sky. The 600 hand-applied organza circles, in a myriad of sky-blue shades, represent clouds during different phases of the day.
The cloud-like hat floats above the wearer’s body introducing a serene aura to the look.
The flowing sheer underlay enhances the soft nature of the look, tying together the loose fringe and roundness of the skirt.
Meet the Designer
Queens, New York,
Growing up I had always immersed myself in the world of design. Discovering the beauty in all the details. From the silhouette down to the fiber content there is always something new to master. Fashion design is a perfect balancing act of technical design, business, and art. This forever challenge continues to fascinate me. Beyond the technical work that goes into a collection, fashion has always meant escapism to me. Now as I move on to my career, I strive to create clothing that gives people that very feeling.
