I received this dress in a folder of review items from ChantKare owner/designer Applonia Criss. In the folder she noted the inspiration for her gowns which was such an interesting touch. For example, this dress was inspired by a vase. Chantkare opened in August and as a new store, there’s not a lot of outfits, but every one is something new, different and lovingly made. For me, the rich colors and beautiful textures make this a compelling and wonderful gown.
