This collection was inspired by the modern ideas of what a “fairytale” should be in contrast to the stories of the Brothers Grimm; the gruesome origins of our storybook endings. I used a sour, unconventional color palette of smoke, sage, navy, and chocolate to bring grittiness to romantic dresses and represented confinement and entrapment through the use of twisted, entangled design lines. The gowns are cut on the bias to create fluidity in the drape and an incredibly flattering fit. The hand faggoted seams reveal a glimpse of skin through luxurious silk, and bring sensuality and femininity to the garments. This couture collection is a work in progress; additional pictures will be posted as more dresses are completed.
