This time of year on the Greek island of Crete there is a literal carpet of wildflowers. Anemones, or “wind flowers” in Greek, come in a variety of brilliant colors with velvety black centers. The brilliant colors of the embroidered lace and iridescent silks that make up this outfit brought back two weeks that I spent in Crete during wildflower season, the height of which is in February and early March.
This fashion features a full black net skirt embroidered in turquoise and purple. Four layers of black sparkle tulle fill out the skirt, which has a dropped, black silk waist. The corset style bodice is made from a vivid turquoise blue silk, with an iridescent purple silk bow belt.
