Concept to Couture 2013

The sketch

Alina Pizzano pulled out her dream book and designed something long, stunning, and 3D just for me. Here is the sketch of the dress. It doesn’t show the cape off the left shoulder, that can be wrapped around me to keep the February chill at bay. (It gets really cold on the Red Carpet!) The swatch is a sample of the what the whole dress will be made of. It’s 3D! It will be shaped and contoured to flow with my body. The design and engineering is all part of Alina’s brilliance.

I’ve not seen anything like this anywhere, and I can’t believe I get to introduce this beautiful creation on the Red Carpet. Many more fittings to come!
