Spring Flowers In The City – La Femme

Vintage floral prints are a safe bet every spring season but, the trick is in getting “big volume” designs to balance on the body just right, regardless of your dress size. Vibrant all-over prints tend to add size as a rule and luxury ready-to-wear is no exception.

Take this RTW Spring 2018 Mary Katrantzou gown online as an example – re-shaping the excess volume around the upper skirt/high-hip area, through the waist seam levels, would balance the look to a beautiful custom fit. Additionally, eliminating excess ease from the back bodice and slimming the upper sleeves to the client’s measurements would enhance the design of the dress significantly.
