It's All In The Details

A little while ago, I got a chance to take a look at Gabriela Goldbaum's collection of silk evening gowns and cocktail dresses. Each piece is decidedly feminine, with an obvious lingerie influence, and has the feel of an opulent pair of silk pajamas made for wearing out. The elegant and somewhat simple exterior hides a network of interior boning and corset work that creates the streamlined silhouette, and the true beauty of the work lies in the craftsmanship. Here are a few of my favorite pieces, along with some shots I took of the little details that make everything work so well.

Stunning designs; I'm particularly taken with the last piece! I especially like the partial backless aesthetic. What intricate details in the construction.
