Description

The sophistication of 30s versus the futuristic approach of the 60s. Jean Harlow versus Stanley Kubrick. “Dinner at eight” versus “2001: a space odyssey”.

Contrast is the basic element of this evening womenswear look. Bias-cut vs straight cut in the same garment, work fabric (canvas) vs party fabric (rayon); and the challenge of using an old curtain to try to create a sophisticated night coat.

THIS LOOK INCLUDES:
- Lime green & apple green dralon coat (made from an old curtain). White rayon
lining.
- Khaki green light cotton canvas dress with silver grey rayon bias-cut panels.

Material Notes

Dralon, rayon; and light cotton canvas.

    I like the blocking on the dress; I would love to do a version of it in really sumptuous evening fabrics, with beading. The colour pallette is the same as the line Andy did for the finals of Project Runway, and I loved it. I think grey, in all of its shades, gets very overlooked. Well done, and good luck with your design career….

      Thank you very much! I had no idea about the colour pallette being used by a finalist of Project Runway as well!
