"Rock and Rose" and "Violets are Blue"

Want a sneak peak at my cousin's fall 2010 collection?

Rock and Rose Dress 1

The description according to my cousin:

"The "Rock and Rose" dress: The top of the sweetheart bodice is made using a matte teardrop Nylon Sequins embroidered on Polyester Tulle and wraps around to the back. The rest of the bodice is made from two-tone Polyester Taffeta with Plastic Boning Inserts. I sculpted a "rose petal" from the Polyester Taffeta and pleated it asymmetrically around one side, wrapping around the rosettes that I individually hand-twisted from Polyester Chiffon. Polyester lining. Exposed gold zipper in back."

The second dress, "Violets are Blue": Bodice is made from two-tone Polyester Taffeta that is draped with an overlay of sheer Nylon Mesh. I hand-braided the fabric to create a unique draped design at the bodice. Mini cap sleeves are made out of the same Nylon Mesh with a Poly Blend Tape used to hem the collar and armhole. The tulip skirt is made of Polyester Taffeta with a sculpted arch on each side, filled with my hand-twisted rosettes made from Nylon Mesh. Belt detail is made from black matte square Nylon Sequins on Polyester Tulle backing. Polyester lining. Exposed gold zipper in back."

  1. I LOVE that first dress! Gorgeous!

  2. Your cousin is so talented! Those dresses are fab, especially the first one. I love those rosettes. The braiding detail on the 2nd dress is also amazing. He has my vote!

  3. Pam,
    I think so!

    Tea Time,
    I love the roses.

    Thanks! We all think so!
