Long dress

Which colour grabs you first, the turquoise blue, the cerise pink background, or the varying shades of raspberry?

Xanadu is an exotic print, which brings to mind birds of paradise and their plumage, although some of the flowers lend themselves more to the imagination of the artist, than seen in full bloom, but does that matter?
The meaning of the word Xanadu is described ‘as a place of great beauty, luxury and contentment’, that’s where I want this dress to take you. There were only a couple of metres of this fabric available, but I couldn’t walk away leaving her behind. I felt the only way to show the artistic detail in its entirety was to make her into a maxi/long dress.

Xanadu was made for dressing to the beat of your own drum, you know you are going to be seen and people are going to talk, as my Mum would say, ‘if people are going to talk about you, then give them something to talk about’!

Another note of design distinction is in the hem of the sleeves. In keeping with the tropical flower motif, the sleeve hem is made as petals, lined in the same fabric. Did I also mention the hemline of the dress, a vibrant orange embroidery stitch. As with all high-quality couture creations, it’s all about attention to detail, and all eyes on you! The only-one-of-a-kind.
