Flower Power

Monochrome delight

A fellow creative described ‘Flower Power’ as a dress to dance in; she had visions of the Tango as the voluminous hemline supported the twists and expressions in this movement of dance.

I fell in love with the simplicity of the sketched outline, the white flowers set on a black background; I still felt, however, the flowers needed to have life injected into them, something that would create an additional interest. Something that would say, this dress like the wearer is different, this dress like the wearer makes you take a second look.

There’s an intimacy with beautiful garments created by hand, the patience and time taken in the design and making up, in the no-detail-too-small kind of quality, such as hand-beading delicate glass beads in the stigma (the centre of the flower), when creating a focal point. All these cause you to take a second look.

Containing a stand collar with drop-shoulder sleeves, the shape of Flower Power glides over your body, caressing your hips, falling into a waterfall hemline dress with a difference. Legs want to be seen, and yet at the same time have an element of mystery, which is where the finely woven netting makes an appearance: subtle sensuality.

When not on the dance floor, I see her being worn with metallic strappy heels, and perhaps a small clutch bag, also metallic in colour, complementing the glass beads. The ideal dinner-dance dress that is comfortable yet distinctive at the same time. The only-one-of-a-kind.
