IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Wowzer!!!!!! Hand-rolled flowers, invisible seams, a pleated bodice,  I absolutely adore these couture touches that take a gown out of the ordinary and put it into the realm of a work of art. Since a custom gown can be 85-90% handmade (yes, you read that right!), the hours it takes to complete one are long and complex. Regardless, the whole process is rewarding for both the designer and dressmakers involved. When we zone in on 'couture' we usually imagine European ateliers where the level of fabrication and fit are taken to the highest level. The details on these gowns pictured  above and below are masterpieces, the details of each component executed with great skill.

PS Thanks for the comment on my blog. You said that you were intrigued by the first building. It's actually two towers - the new JW Marriott Marquis Hotel. The world's tallest hotel.
