As my handful of readers know, I usually design clothes to fill the holes in my own wardrobe. This week, the hole in my heart -- i mean closet -- could only be filled with a lacey beaded slip dress. Despite the obvious vainglory of this design method, I feel like it's the truest form of market research: what does the modern woman need in her closet? I'm modern, I'm a woman, I has closet.
I paired the dress I made with my vintage snake Nina Ricci bag (ebay), vintage Chanel boots (Poshmark) and vintage Chloe belt (ebay), and threw on one of my tapestry jackets. This tapestry is from Turkeyand is finished with a metallic navy lamb leather piping and silk-satin lining. It will hit the shop next week but keep your ear to the ground because there is only ONE like it!
