Inspired by NASA’s ability to “blast off on a mission to take No. 5 to one of the seven newly discovered Earth-like planets orbiting the Trappist-I Star,” I was drawn to transforming the first trans-American eclipse in 99 years in a new light in a Celestial Soirée Collection for Summer 2019.
”An ethereal supernova, the celestial goddess exudes stellar beauty and strength eclipsed by femininity.”
The references are subtly used, peeking through in atomic-sized glass Swarovski beading on chiffon drapes and lustrous silks.
Each piece is designed for a different celestial “body,” if you will, from
midi-length sensuality, to backless enchantments with demure necklines. Silk satin cigarette pants designed to entwine both goddess and astronaut – elegant, and yet polished to practicality.
