The Pagoda Gown


So here is how they say my pièce de résistance…I have been working on the design of this gown for a good while, during that time it has gone through several different incarnations, but I am most happy with this…this also happens to be one of my favorite pieces I have designed so far.

This gown pays homage to the 1930s, and in particular to a gown worn by Anna May Wong in a film called “Limehouse Blues.” This dress is made from luxurious black satin. It is cut on the bias and has a short train with a multitude of fabric buttons all the way down.  The dress has a round neck and dramatic shoulders that were very popular in early to mid-1930s high fashion gowns by designers like Schiaparelli. The dragon made up of embroidery and sequins with a rhinestone eye. The gown has a concealed side zipper.
