This is one of the latest prototypes for a dress that I will be making for my upcoming fashion line. It is based very much on the beautiful, elegant evening gowns of the 1930s as well as one gown in particular worn by the actress Anna May Wong. The dress that the picture shows her wearing below is from a film from 1934 called “Limehouse Blues”. The original version is on black satin and has a traditional Mandarin collar. I updated the design by putting the dragon on a bias cut 1930s style evening gown with flutter made from luxurious midnight blue satin.
Below you may see some of the photos of what inspired me to make this gown:
