One Shouldered Cocktail Ensemble in Liberty of London Hera

Posted on

Named after the Greek goddess Hera whose sacred animal was the peacock, this fabric was designed in 1887 and features an iconic peacock feather pattern. It is now part of the Classic Tana Lawn collection.

This is an elegant ensemble inspired by a cocktail dress by Madame Grès from 1957.  The bodice has one shoulder, embroidered with tiny beads in shades of green and turquoise blue.  The dramatic peacock print has shades of pale olive green, turquoise blue, French blue, and cantaloupe orange.  The full skirt is split in front, revealing capri pants in iridescent cantaloupe orange silk.  An orange silk hand fringed sash ties at the waist.  Dangling earrings with green and turquoise Miyuki beads are an elegant finishing touch.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, and FR2 dolls
