More Exquisite Portraiture, and To Italy with Love..

Dear Friends,

I am awash in corset pieces, pink taffeta and striped ruffles,
due to the little vignette I shall be doing at the
Dances Of Vice 'Swan Lake
Masquerade Ball'
, but alas, I realize I have not posted several new works!

I had the pleasure of using my new camera yet again for a new couture hairstyle,
the "la Margaux" wig..

It is 18th century and Kabuki theatre inspired.
The lovely statuesque Falon ( or Falonne to some) is modeling the famous "La Conciergerie"
( or prision) dress from the "Sacre Coeur Couture" show of 2008.

A friend made the comment that it 'reminded him of John Singer Sargent", which
made me incredibly humbled and happy. Singer Sargent is one of my Favourite

I also had to pleasure to finish a commission for a lovely Miss in Italy who
is a Baroque re-enactor. The "De Lamballe " style in black, with white powder,
my choice of hair decor ( with her palette) and a custom Louis XIV cameo choker.

I will be releasing the choker design in other colours in early summer.

I have had the pleasure of another exceptional photo shoot as of this past weekend,
which I will be posting shortly.

Cheers to beautiful things!
