Every year we do a couple of runway shows to display our latest and most unique style.
One of our most recent shows took place at the Museum of Nature and Science here in Denver.
We showed several women’s sportswear, outwear and formal wear looks.
The pics show some of our favorites: a ivory wool herringbone suit with beige trim, cropped pants, and a flat cap; a purple tweed peplum jacket with a sporty brown topper, brown pants, and a bold silk cravat; an our of our famous rocker tailcoats shown with a velvet 8-panel cap.
Almost all of the pieces we make are created with a specific client in mind.
A client contacts us and we start sketching and mailing her swatches of fabric until we have the perfect design.
We work with clients all around the world making clothing for lesbian weddings and other formal events, stage shows, and every day wear.
But a runway show is a chance to really have fun with our designs.
To us, every good design has an element of fantasy and evokes the classic designs of the past.
A subtle sugarplum silk with a delicate lace overlay. A bit of the modern with a nod to the Victorian.
A flannel lined silk biker jacket for extra warmth.
We love to make dresses with a dash of unique style. Why get married in a dress that is just like the dress that everyone is wearing this year?
The pics show one of the favorite dresses that we made for a recent client.
She liked a the modern backless style, but liked the slender “natural form” Victorian style dresses as well.
The silhouette features a mini-bustle cut from lace and silk with a lace drape below.
At first, we wanted to design a bolero to go with the jacket, but we settled on something a bit longer and warmer—-that could be worn with blue jeans as well down the road.
The jacket has an awesome cowl draped neck with decorative buttons.
The inside is lined in plush cotton flannel.
One of our favorite parts of this dress though is the color.
Combining a color with ivory, as on this dress, makes for a piece that has more character and individuality than a purely white dress.
The soft purple of the dress gives the dress a graceful vintage look.
A colored dress is often much more flattering as well.
A solid white tends to magnify the figure.
Every year we make suits and dresses for clients in every part of the world—–so if you are thinking of a custom dress, just drop us a line and we will start sketching something for you.
All of these dresses are Muslin Fit insuring the best possible look.
This means that we cut and sew a cotton mock-up of the dress that we mail to you to try on—that way you can send your feedback and comments and we can rework the style and fit to look even better on you—-you just send us digital pics so that we can work with you to decide on the changes.
