Evening Ensemble (Detail)
House of Worth
This is truly an attention getting gown with fantastical themes. The fantasy here is depicted in the bodice which imitates a peasant’s cotton blouse and is played against the traditional 18th century and neoclassical motifs in the skirt embroidery.
Flower girls series by Stasia Burrington
You’ve all seen Susie Bubble before, but who’d be better to portray this collection of prints, patterns and colours? We packed a big suitcase with the SS/14 collection and shipped it to Susie in the midst fashion week travels. She picked her favourites and put together different looks for this story, which was then snapped by her friend Phil Oh on the streets of Milan and Paris.
Paper Mosaic Sculptures by Gunjan Aylawadi
Paper artist Gunjan Aylawadi is based in Sydney, Australia. She uses a unique method of paper cutting and curling, adding layers of texture to get sculptural form with her hand made work. The process has been a long time of research and experiment and now she can give shape to her ideas with a very detailed and original style!
She actually shows large paper mosaic installations at the “He Made She Made” gallery, Darlinghurst, 70 Oxford street, Sydney.
Evening Coat (Detail)
This evening coat with its distinctive oversized sleeves is a fine example of the work of the House of Rouff, a premiere couture house in the late-19th into the 20th century. Rouff was known for the lingerie feel to their garments, which always included a multitude of ruffles and laces.
