Rose Gold Cocktail Ensemble

Another favorite brocade from my stash, this one is hot pink woven with gold, resulting in an overall warm, golden shimmer.  The fabric, which is pure silk brocade from India, is woven with a pattern of paisley and leaves.  The form-fitting strapless sheath dress has a sweetheart neckline.  The matching bolero jacket has a richly beaded neckline in alternating stripes of rose pink and gold beads.

Vineyard Cocktail Ensemble

An unusual but striking combination of colors makes up this cocktail ensemble.  The fabric is a silk brocade of green vines twining on a wine colored background.  The two colors woven together create a beautiful iridescent shimmer.  The strapless sheath is decorated with an oversized bow at the hip in burgundy metallic silk organza.  The cropped bolero jacket is made from the reverse of the sheath fabric and is fully lined in bottle green silk.  A richly beaded collar at the neckline adds sparkle.  A lovely ensemble for wine season!

Autumn Sheath Set

As summer turns to fall, shades of copper and gold become more prominent in the landscape.  This always inspires me to reach for these colors when I am designing.  This sheath and jacket set is made from a beautiful silk brocade in these colors.  The sheath has a coppery brown silk sash and bow with fringed edges.  A bolero jacket with a collar of gold beads adds sparkle.
