I love to pair up suiting with lace: one is sensible, the other romantic.
I made this dress in the winter when it was -30c and I was annoyed with the expectation that for women, dressing up means being sexy, which means revealing skin, which is just too damn cold for Canada in December. Honestly, I spend most of the winter in a thick sweater dress and massive parka, but I felt like a compromise was possible…
So I designed a dress that I could wear out to a concert or a nice dinner without baring my shoulders and getting cold, but which still has that little tease, that pretty piece of sheer lace.
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
