Beautiful...Romantic...Tailored...yet, one cannot help but notice McQueens seams, cuts and silhouettes, not too mention the love of Tartan. I do believe that McQueen is to 21stC Fashion Designers/Acolytes what Balenciaga was for the 20thC. No one else compares in influence, no matter how dark his path went, it was the Visionaire who remained even seen today thru the lens of Project Runway designers who dress celebs and in the stores...which means the mainstream economics of the World of Fashion.
Yes, a great influence here. Oudshoorn's ability to marry the tartan and sequin is exquisite, such restraint. quite beautiful. pgt
The 5th photo is mesmerizing!
yes, what caught my eye was the restraint in using sequins in adornment while keeping the line and cut pure. sequins tend to always dominate both-here not so. pgt
Love tartan, but especially the coat. So beautiful.
Donna, I am just crazy about it too. that coat is definitely the most wearable for me-I do Love that tartan bodice and bow in back, with the silvery black sequins for demure glamour! so glad all is well at your home. pgt
I love the tartan--all of it! Thanks, Mary
Mary I do too-so right this time of year! pgt
The cut of the coat and the 5th dress is flawless.
yes, I agree. just perfect. thank you for stopping to comment! best, pgt
The gown with the touch of sheer tartan at the bodice has captivated me. One of my first gowns was black velvet with black, red and green tartan!xoxoKarenaThe Arts by Karena
Karena, perhaps that is why I am so partial to it too. In college I wore a little black velvet jacket, white lace top and black white and silver tartan skirt to a christmas formal. the next year I wore a red satin blouse and a full ball skirt in green,red and black tartan-big sash. Still have them both!-though alas I Know they don't fit. Impossible to let them go. pgt
