Inspiration from Gloria Coelho

Gloria Coelho is a brazilian designer who´s SS2009 collection (detail images here) was full of gathered shoulder and sleeve details and millstone collars. Any plain dress can be upgraded with some stunning shoulder detailing and this is the collection to inspire that! I know most of you have miles and miles of satin ribbons in your craft storage which are perfec for projects like these. And if you don´t take an old sheet or fabric, tear it to shreads and use them. You can also take the fabric from a full length dress, by making the hem shorter.

Phasellus facilisis convallis metus, ut imperdiet augue auctor nec. Duis at velit id augue lobortis porta. Sed varius, enim accumsan aliquam tincidunt, tortor urna vulputate quam, eget finibus urna est in augue.
