Eva, a modified A-line in silk dupion. The empire front of silk chiffon works into a sash and ties in front.

Inspiration: Richard Avedon's shot of Yves Saint Laurent's first dress for House the of Dior. This photo appeared in Harper's Bazaar, 1955.
I always liked the long lines on this dress. I knew when the time was right a certain design like 'Eva' would come out of it. This dress is all about the sash that adds height for brides who want to go vertical. Picture is so unusual, so original.
