In creating this outfit I was inspired by skiing.
This is a very difficult and beautiful sport. I've been doing this sport for a long time. This outfit I tried to show how I see the sports couture - is the freedom, power and elegance, without unnecessary gloss and other trumpery.
In this Challenge, I was inspired by the works of two wonderful designers Alexander McQueen and Christian Lacroix.
I took as a basis for precise silhouette of McQueen and his seductive style: feminine form, ruffles on the skirt, veiltail trail .. She added, bright accents of Lacroix: unusual fabrics for evening dress - calico, bright colors, fabric flowers, massive decorations, fancywork with gold ...
When I was looking for inspiration for this stage I looked old Hollywood movies and a collection of dresses fashion designers of the time. I was impressed the beauty of these dresses!
I have not tried to copy that style and the dress.
I just sewed a beautiful dress for a beautiful girl ..
The basis of my outfit is a dress made of satin with a deep neckline and high front slit on the skirt. Dress decorated with flounces and draperies of translucent fabric brooches with pearls, pearl straps and silver chains. To add character I made shoes with pearl straps, barrettes, and tippet with feathers trimmed with marabou feathers.
