Description

The book “Eat, Pray, Love” inspired me to create a series of three skirts, one for each of the three main chapters.
I designed this skirt for the second chapter and I chose a black thick satin. Black as in the priests’ or nuns’ church clothes. But my inspiration from church stopped here. I added several feminine touches and at the end the skirt looked more flirty than pious…
Underneath the ruffles at the bottom I used red tulle – a fabric I’ve started to pay more attention lately. I like it for its vaporous , flirty look. It’s a discreet fabric and yet you can’t miss its presence :)
