"Flower Girl" # 3










... So I ended up with this beautiful palette of colors... the "bouquets" were taking shape in front of me and I honestly fell in love with these... the color palette from the Nina Ricci collection was so beautiful, unfortunately quiet often when you see the pictures of a catwalk on Style.com or other sites they loose a lot of details and sometimes a lot of colors... In the belts for example I even used flowers in velour, taffetas and a hand wrinkled fabric that I shaped myself all in different colors so the result was really a color and texture explosion... something you loose in a picture of a catwalk...
After several days of cutting meters and meters of silk chiffon, organza, tulle, ribbons and organdy, all my flowers for Nina Riccis beautiful "Winter Garden" were ready I could finally join the team in the studio and the best part of the collaboration started there... 4 days before the show...
