Cosmos "Design by Alexa CASTILLO"

The DRESS is named Cosmos, a flower found in Imperial Gardens.  The inspiration came from Astronomy, the bright galaxies, stars and meteor showers.  A modern aristocrat laid poised on discs as if a cluster of stars within a space full of galaxies made the perfect inspiration.

The set consisted of LP Records laying around and under the model symbolizing the galaxies with the dress as the meteor shower of stars, the model chosen to represent the glamour of a shining star.  The  theme contrasted visually with outfit to recreating a classic dress into a modern luxurious look.

The rich silk brocade, the pleaded bodice, the empire waist and short length of the dress states the glamour of Hollywood; stylizing it with a strappy stilettos and an up and to the side hairdo with a sophisticated makeup makes any woman feel like star; fashioning a look of Modern Monarchy.
