“Bellissima Loves Dior” in Concord Grape

Posted on

Some of you may not know that Bellissima Couture Fashions recently moved across the country!  On October 3rd Phil and I, our two cats, and our dog moved to Portland, Oregon.  We then waited more than two weeks to receive our possessions, and then the unpacking began.  The first thing I set up was my sewing machine  Inspired by the gorgeous, myriad shades of green in the Pacific Northwest, the deep purple of our neighbor’s concord grapes, and the onset of Autumn, this outfit resulted.

The style “Bellissima Loves Dior” is done here in a color palette of black, dark purple and forest green.  The silk brocade jacket has a wide collar, bracelet length sleeves and a flared peplum hem.  A bow belt highlights the waist line in dark purple silk dupioni.  The same dark purple silk makes up the skirt and black tulle peeks out from the hemline.  A dramatic black hat trimmed with green feathers and a large purple bow completes this elegant ensemble.
