Belted Sheath Dress "I Love Loei"
(Garment was edited to model)
I present this item from my Land Of Smiles collection; inspired by Thailand’s traditional clothing and the countryside throughout Southeast Asia. I backpacked throughout the region and discovered incredible landscapes and vibrant culture. Besides, I noted how local people dressed in connection with those of royalty. The challenge was combining the region's contemporary fashion with its traditional subgroup into something ready to wear. In the process, I came upon this beautiful cotton batik fabric from Indonesia. Batik is a prominent textile in Southeast Asia. Thus, I applied the tradition of cloth and style and combined it with western techniques. This ensemble is almost similar to "Phuket Lifestyle" the exception is having 3/4 length sleeves and a slightly wider neckline. However, other attributes are the same. Belt included cinching waistline. The fabric is a lightweight green floral that is great for a sunny day. Two patch pockets sit at the waist to add function and provide space.
The garment was not photographed on the model, thus, the garment was graphically designed onto the body to give a realistic view on how it would look on a person. The original garment prior from edit was a different color and no longer available.
