Abstract

The inspiration for this ensemble came from the languid silk dress designs of the 1920’s. The purpose of this design endeavor was to create an ensemble for a client to wear to a special dinner at the NYC Four Seasons Restaurant with her fiancé and his parents. The client wanted a slender pleated dress with coordinating short jacket, reminiscent of Fortuny style with an updated cocktail-length hem.
