Dolce-gabbana-byzantine-mosaic-dress-5_large

Description

Dolce and Gabbana were inspired by the golden mosaics of Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale and Byzantine art for their Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection. I was deeply impressed and remained speechless when I saw the traditional mosaic prints with the faces of saints appearing on everything from dresses and bags to shoes. The pattern is a jersey top from Burdastyle, the only alteration was to widen the neckline. The dress is lined with beautiful red Bemberg lining. I used fliseline to prevent neckline and armholes from stretching. More photos on my blog

    I like your replica! I regret that we common folks do not have access to all the shiny fabrics that D&G used. there is something tempting in their collection!

    You should open your own fashion store if you dont have one already and share your beautiful creations with the rest of fashion folk :)
