The hoodie is made from silk chiffon and ivory mesh with sheer leaves appliqued onto the sleeve on one side.

The dress is a silk bustier, but we customized it by adding fullness to the skirt; layers of shredded lace and silk to fill it out and add volume.

Here they are, all piling up on the table.

Hearts that take waaaay too long to make!  They are pieced from little cut pieces of silk chiffon.  Then we spray them with water and fill all the gaps and keep working that way until they become full fluffy multicolor heart explosions!

Appliqued onto tank tops, they come to life.

Here you see them at the early stages of the process.  We sew them onto black or white Lycra mesh so that they retain their elasticity.  The technique is quite complicated.

Before we sew it onto a top, it gets a little haircut to clean up the edges.

What a mess in the studio when these are in production.  Soon we will be making little mini heart pins.  Can’t wait.
