Ms. Joy Teiken drew inspiration for this collection from of all things-- Dr. Suess. Amazingly, she was able to craft beautiful yet wearable, one-of-a-kind pieces that were anything but green eggs & ham-ish. The hats were seriously out of this world and so well-made that we had to ask Joy if she made them all by herself (she did!). Susie, being the make-up guru of the agency had to inquire about the story behind the make-up for the models (which was elegant, simple and very au naturel faces)-- to which Joy let us know was inspired by an older Valentino runway show. Enough with the verbage though-- here's some eye-candy!
simple & classic multi-purpose dress (think bridesmaid, bride, cocktail) with intricate detailing (ruffles, well-structured bodice)
LOVE LOVED the basket-weaving on the bodice & the overlay draping of the two fabrics on the bottom of the dress
one of the more edgier pieces: shimmery pants with an ultra-cool striped top (loving the choice of fabrics)--MY FAVE LOOK OF THE NIGHT!
