Yet another custom piece from Eric Walcott.
The idea behind this piece was to add punch to a 1950's classic.
This dress has the classic silhouette that we all know and love, but it's done in this funky crocodile/alligator print. The dark parts of the print are a black shiny "wet-look" material and I fell head over heels the moment I laid eyes on it.
At first I intended to have this material as the top portion of this dress and a solid on the bottom....tre tacky....and not in a good way. I don't know what I was thinking...
Then I told her to just make the entire dress in this material, and boy am I entirely too happy with the result!
I spent an entire day in her home while she finished off my custom pieces, because Erica Walcott believes in perfection, and she wasn't letting me leave until I got exactly what I asked for, not to mention that she made my epic jacket in less than two hours...she wasn't playing games.
Once it was all done, I put it on for the final time at her home, and can I just say SWOON!
