Miami, Florida, ...






I made this garment using Bob Mackey as inspiration long time ago. It was for my last fashion show at Trunk (The fashion week in Miami)

I designed a skin tone fitted dress with ostrich feathers on the neck line and a huge train, the lace was sewn by hand covering the seams of the foundation creating the illusion of transparency.

It was a time conuming project, but at the end I was very pleased with the outcome

Material Notes

Bonning, interfacing, and zipper




Garment Type
Bridal, Romantic, Vintage
Lace/Sequins, Taffeta, Tulle
