Look What I Found In My Closet!
During my designing days in Hawaii I paid homage to a pleated top that I originally wore in the Sixties (below).
The original blouse was made in cotton and buttoned up the back.
Modeled below by a young Australian teen, my new interpretation eliminated the collar. Instead of cotton I used a silk chiffon for a tropical climate. Warm breezes blow this light and luxurious top with what I called a ‘slinky’ skirt made from an exclusive French textile, also my design. Both were featured in my boutique at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu. BTW, the blouses sold like hotcakes at $199.
