Leather and Viscose Pedestal Dress - The idealization of a partner inspired this sharp silhouette reminiscent of a column. The asymmetry of the leather bust protecting this angel's heart and gauntlet gloves creates a narrative of how one can be idealized by their lover despite a guarded disposition.

Leather and Viscose Winged Dress - This illusion of a daring silhouette plays with the idea of comfort-zones as pertaining to love. The wearer can have complete freedom of movement depending on their apprehension to risk exposure through lifting the skirt. If they play it safe, they are in no fear of being hurt or facing embarrassment. If they are willing to take a risk, they can live the full experience the dress and symbolic relationship has to offer with a free spirit. Talent: Sara Maloney; Dynasty Models.
