Indus Valley Dress
This is the first dress I sketched for the collection, but never thought I'd find the right fabric to actually construct it. This fabric was more amazing than I imagined when dreaming up the dress design and was fabulous to work with...sateen cotton with just the right hint of shine and brush-stroked watercolors that instantly transport the mind to exotic locales.
Pretty...yes. It's partially structured with a fitted waist and precise, pin-tucked pleats.
Feminine...absolutely...but by using the wildness of the print to imitate an ombre effect you're reminded that it's not quite a tame dress.
My goal with Indus Valley was to design the sort of dress woman would rush to wear at the first hint of sun-warmed air after months of dreary, winter days.
What sort of occasion would you attend wearing the Indus Valley dress?
