Asymmetrical Cowl Dress

this dress is made by printed silk

because the cowl is draped from left shoulder down to right till waist

I want the bottom also has the twist draped texture, but in opposite direction

It will form an interesting shape if the dress is made from organza

which i want to try next time

something I am working on

the theme is called Yin & Yang

I am trying to make a dress that has the feel of contrast and balance

i use silk charmeuse as the base dress and silk chiffon as the lining

the surface decor pieces will be a combination of different fabric

in various shade of red

it’s under construction now. Will update when it’s complete~

Sher Dress

inspired by Oriental Culture

a day to night dress for young professional women

the silhouette is fitted to body, raised front waist line visually enlongers the legs and the open back design gives a little surprise

I chose mens suiting fabric for the dress and silk organza as the top to give an elegance and sophisticated touch
