Custom Ruffled Green Top for an Editorial Shoot

Here is another piece I created a while ago for an editorial shoot. I love the silk organza’s color, and I wanted to create something nice with it . . . Something non-floral in every single way.

I don’t hate flowers, but I don’t particularly love them either. And, yet, most of the headpieces and dresses I’ve created so far have flower-shaped trims on them because I find them easy to make. As some sort of compromise, I make those flowers as geometric as possible. People seem to like them. So, all is good. Sort of. But, before long, creating flower-shaped trims has become some sort of a crutch. And, THAT, is not good. I really need to do something about it or I’ll stagnate. So, I challenged myself to create 3 flower-free outfits in a month. The one you see below is one of them.

The color of the fabric makes me think of the Greek Goddess of Harvers, Demeter. And, I imagined the fabric would make a beautiful Lanvin-style Grecian-inspired dress. But . . . it wouldn’t fit with the tone of the editorial I created this top for . . . Besides, I just can’t bring myself to knock another designers works off.

So, I decided to create something that features a several of my favorite SS2016 trends: ruffles, pleats, paperbag waist, and clothing with both transparent and opaque elements. But, I still keep the reference to Demeter. Like Ancient Greek chiton (or tunic), the wearer slips this top over her head and fasten it on the waist.

It looks nearly identical on the back, and meant to be worn with something else on the bottom.

My career as a designer has been on a semi temporary hiatus ✨ The only new pieces I've been creating are custom made for my personal art & photography projects 👀  That said, I have a number of new ongoing projects which means that I'll be unveiling my new handmade dresses & accessories in a near future. 
P.S.  Many of my pieces are still available for rent via @dreamshootrentals I construct my dresses exactly the way I construct my headpieces ... Same methods, same materials, just bigger 🙊 Green 🌵 Exactly one year ago ... @miuvermillion Getting ready to up my game For a full length photos of the dress & close up photo of the claws, visit 👉 https://angelicabrigade.wordpress.com
