Delectable Drapery


Elder Street has had its fair share of women clients over the last year, and we were thrilled to be asked to create a special evening dress for one of our esteemed customers. Worked on by Magdalena and Marija, this floor length dress more than nods to ‘Madame Vionnet’. Crafted in a dark teal silk crepe, the design features a draped waist which cascades into a waterfall skirt all of its own. The shoulder strap is slightly twisted, and the dress was bound throughout with a beautiful navy binding. Hats off to Magdalena and Marija who toiled on this project for over two weeks to get the shape just tickety-boo.
