See You Later Alligator. After While Crocodile.

by Jamila Pierre


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!

  But can you say pockets?!
