By a lake full of peacock colored ripples
Hiding here listening to “ Pavane pour une infante defunte”
By a window full of rain dancing outside
second skirt design for peacock princess or queen, inspired from Ravel’s debut piano work. Asymmetrical, romantic, if the first linen skirt is a little sorrow and a little crazy all at once, this design is more ethereal and of dream like quality.
* I found the fabric right before Chinese New Year holiday, many suppliers closed for holiday already. I only got four hours sleep the night before and fatigue pressing upon me after 3 days’ trip of new fabric sourcing. It was 13 pm, I had to have a coffee to get refreshed again to continue the trip. I twittered, and saw a photo shot from Jil Sander’s show. The ethereal chiffon with subtle prints awaked me better than caffeine. I thought of the fabric and ran to the supplier. What is the chemical when subtle peacock print chiffon meets beautiful colored lining? It is so beautiful that pictures will never do justice, how can a camera to capture a dream?
* Used three layers fabric, it won’t be see through, it will be breathing and comfortable still. First layer is quality chiffon with silver gray peacock feather print with blue eyes. Second layer is quality chiffon lining in sky blue. The last layer is light weight cotton in white, soft touch and in winters when you match the design with jacket, it is anti-static.
* With fashion jewelry inspired over long waist strings decorated with wooden beads and hand painted porcelain beads and peacock feathers. You may wear it as necklace as well since it is detachable. It is detachable so that you can machine wash the skirt.
* The shape and length of the skirt is adjustable with two out-seam drawing strings, there will be beautiful ripple like pleats all around you.
* Not like an ordinary chiffon skirt, our skirt design is very flattering and helps you look slimmer by cut and details. The waist detail is sewn with many elastic threads, so that it is more comfortable and very flattering when wearing as a dress. We fully understand not everyone has Audrey Hepburn’s figure, working hard on details to help you look slimmer is very important. Devil is in the detail.
* Peacock feather is the only feather we will use for designs, it is stunningly beautiful, and doesn’t need to kill the bird to get, so it goes with our animal friendly policy. It is too beautiful to be true, the first question most people see it in real life will ask “ is it really real?” We only order from reliable supply for top quality big eye peacock feathers from Thailand (love to work with Thai people!).
* The skirt is easy to wear and versatile, can be dressed down or dress up, goes with Less is More off the shoulder top or a simple shirt you already have. It can be a strapless dress as well. It can be worn with jacket for a unique fall and winter look as well.
1. Elastic waist with inner drawing strings
