This was a series of dresses working with Ciment pleaters on different fabrics to produce sunray pleats. I love the sunray pleats and how the skirt falls closer to the body but can be pulled out to a full art deco ray when dancing.
For this dress we used a beautiful deep emerald green Japanese satin that is very shiny, slinky and crisp just like the rayon slips of the 1940s. This green in particular is beautiful and combined with the lace give a subtle contrast . I love the ultra fine straps giving it a ballet feel.
