Greetings, from the taffeta jungle! With Prom season well underway, the studio has seen fewer nights full of ingenuity, and more nights filled with an un-corked bottle of wine. Inspiration is wherever you find it.
With bags of fabric piled up everywhere, the most recent development is in the birth of a new swing dress. Being pieced together as we speak, the dress is sporting a vintage front neckline, and a sexy low back. A full skirt gives it the perfect nostalgic swing we love here at UV.
The inspiration board doesn’t only draw upon an era, but perhaps evokes a mood more than anything. I tend to find a lot of inspiration in these blips in time where so much was happening in the picture, and yet all of it stops for a second. You rarely get the chance to look back on one moment and really dissect it.
The fabric speaks to me in a way probably a lover only should, but words are words! It’s always nice to feel a sense of nearing completion with these garments. If for no reason but sheer anticipation for the next one.
