Sheath style black evening gown of fine Belgian lace. This gown is fully underlined in sheer silk organza and the seams are bound in skin tone colored silk to make the seam lines invisible. To further maintain the sheer look, a custom made nude colored undergarment is worn underneath. A plunging back neckline ends in a spray of silk flowers and leaves.

A splash of glorious color is a refreshing change from black and makes for eye popping entrances! In this richly colored two piece evening outfit, a strapless bustier is paired with a soft -pleated full-length skirt. The skirt fabric is a wonderful crisp silk taffeta in a deep plum color. The bustier is made of an exquisite, Swiss brocade haute couture fabric. It is finished at the neck edge with a narrow piping in the same fabric as the skirt. A cumberbund of irridescent chartreuse/plum doupionni adds a dash of complementary color.

This two piece evening outfit began its life as the wedding coat which appears in the bridal photos. The bride wanted to make use of the coat after the wedding so
it was remade into a three quarter coat. We narrowed down the fullness in the
jacket, and added a slim fitting straight skirt.

Make an entrance! The fitted, velvet jacket has a flattering open neckline and front button closure with small onyx and rhinestone buttons. A single, large silk bloom at the front waist adds interest. The fullness of the formal length skirt is gently released from the waist in deep, soft box pleats. Unlike a gathered waist, flat pleats allow for fullness in the skirt while eliminating the look of bulk. The striped skirt, made of hand woven silk doupionni could easily be worn with a close fitting silk sweater or cashmere turtleneck for another look altogether.

Utterly simple, utterly elegant. Palest blue sheath gown is made of luxurious 4-ply silk crepe. Plunging V-neckline and sleeve hems feature deep topstitch detail. The full length gown has a knee high walking slit at the center front.
This fitted sheer lace top is made of fine French lace in a deep eggplant color. It can be worn with a solid color camisole, a nude colored bodystocking or, for the daring, nothing at all underneath. Pair it with a skirt or pants in silk charmeuse or fine wool.
