Here we go with a rich blend of past and present chic from the collections. Some of it I have to admit is timeless in trendiness–10 years later a few of these gems are still being ordered and customized. The hourglass/1950s silhouette continues to be a big fave with my clients and maybe the reason they come to me in particular. But the clingy gowns that hark back to the 1920/30s have to be my biggest and most personal inspo this past year. Right now I’m starting a capsule collection of Titanic/Downton Abbey period dresses. My direction will probably change yet again next season when I see some lovely costume drama with incredible applications on silks.
