Hi there! The past few weeks have involved so much designing, cutting, measuring, and of course…sewing! Why so much? Well, on 3/23/2018 my Modern Vintage Collection will be showcased at the Sunny Isles Beach Fashion Show, which will be held in The Ancient Spanish Monastery in North Miami Beach. To add to it, a few of my designs will be worn by some of the current title holders from the Ms. Art Deco Beauty Pageant, which is stellar organization produced by Fatima Coello. It’s truly an honor to have such graceful ladies wear my designs down the runway.
So if you’re in the Miami area, pass on by. There will be cocktails, photographers, a red carpet, and even Paso Fino horses from the Hacienda Guadalupe Equestrian Academy! Click on the link below to get your tickets. Have a glamorous week and see you there!
Valentine’s day is all about celebrating those closest to us. The ones that impact our lives beyond the experience of a single moment. Valentine’s Day is all about reminding our present how much we appreciate the past, which is what this updated vintage dress is all about.
I was inspired by the iconic Audrey Hepburn’s look for my first Valentine’s Day post. Her timeless and elegant style defined an era. As a tribute, the lovely Keily Camejo modeled a YaviReyes remake of Butterick Patterns B5708 1950’s dress.
I love every single thing about this pattern, which is why I decided to recreate the look without altering the design. The pink chiffon fabric, the batiste underlining, and the added silk organza petticoat all come together to make this one of my favorites. Oh, and the lace applique with the dark stems are the perfect subtle contrast. To top it off, its style can be changed to a strapless or one shoulder dress. I can talk about it all day long. Instead, check out this vintage inspired photo shoot so you can see for yourself.
Wishing everyone a stylish Valentine’s Day!
Keily looked amazing in the dress, which made it challenging to pick just a few photos to be part of this post. I’ll be sharing the other pics on my Instagram. On another note, coming soon is my Prom Collection, which I am equally excited to share!
