BERNINA 3 Series - "Ruffle Riki" dress

Added Nov 22, 2010

Timisoara, Romania






This is my idea of a party dress inspired by the absolutely tailored 1940s and 1950s.
What I love about that decade is that the suits and dresses were contoured to the shape of the body, giving women an absolute perfect feminine shape. Fashion was never more flattering to the female body than in that era.
My inspiration, Dorian Leigh, the first to be considered a supermodel, adopted this unforgivable style. Her sophistication and elegance was celebrated by photographer Richard Avedon on the covers of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
Although the colors of the gowns back then were rather plain, my dress is of vivid pink..a color some may classify as “eye-piercing”. The ruffles around the hips and chest add more volume to the silhouette, giving the model the much-desired hourglass shape emphasized as well by the details on the waist.
