Description

Coture quality coat utilizing various animal prints, including Cheetah and Dragonfly. Coat is lined in several silks, the lining “Chaneled” (hand quilted) to the fashion fabric giving it a sculptured and ultimately more flattering shape. Cuffs are trimmed with self fringe and there are hand painted leather buttons at the cuff and throat. The buttons alone are small works of art. Coat can be viewed at Morrison Galleries in Geneva, Il.

    The under collar fabric gives a great bit of whimsy to the coat…lovely.

      Details, details. One thing leads to another, sometimes it’s hard to know when you’re done ;-)
