One of my favourite Toronto stylists, Amanda Lee Shirreffs, used our vintage pieces for a spread in Elle Serbia. The groupie inspired shoot includes our 1960s silk brocade jacket, 1970s embroidered velvet coat and sequined lame maxi dress!
Allison came to me earlier this year, because she needed a gown for her tea ceremony, but she didn’t want anything that was too traditional. So, we incorporated elements like the Mandarin collar and fitted bodice, but there was also a touch of old Hollywood glamour. We created a beautiful illusion bodice with silk covered buttons and the column skirt was designed to perfectly compliment the height of her YSL red pumps. I love the balance of East and West!
