This week’s window has been curated around that  bubblelicous cocktail dress in the centre. It dates from the 1960’s and was originally purchased from Saks Fifth Ave. Whomever designed it, was clearly inspired by Paul Poiret. From the cocoon shaped tulle over layer to the hobble hem, it harks back to the teens but with fresh go-go twist.

This week’s window is a varied assortment of eras. Judy on the left is sporting a contemporary Gucci jersey dress. Centre darling is wearing a 1950’s abstract fruit print frock, and righty is clad in a 1990’s Dior knit gown. This piece screams Cindy Crawford, doesn’t it?

This week we have gilded our Judys in attempt to follow up last week’s blinged out window. Nothing makes us swoon more than hand beading. The difference between machine beading vs. hand,  is like night and day. Take for instance the centre gown, if you zoom in you will see what we mean. The inconsistency of sequin placement is key to its beauty and quality. We are your Textile Geek Squad!
