Coco Chanel Is a Phoenix Rising

posted by Gidge Uriza

This extraordinary ball gown is a tribute to Coco Chanel and the overwhelming femme design with so many “finishing” touches – such as all the roses all over it, truly makes it a lovely and modern take on designer who was far ahead of her time.

If you’ve ever worn Chanel or SEEN Chanel’s creations, sometimes they seems like there are a lot of PIECES, a lot of details that create that overall look – yet lose one and you lose the symmetry of the style and design – even when that style is assymetry. So with this dress, some roses are larger than others, and all scattered with very precise randomness around the skirt.

The next shot is of the full gown. Were I going to wear this gown on a date with my husband I’d wear black hose. However, I did not wear them because I really wanted you to see how DELICATE the bottom layers are – and the great design of the heavy top skirt which seems to float on air above gossamer.

I’m going to wear this out somewhere lovely before the end of the year – I just don’t know where yet! Ideas?
