The festive season has finally arrived and we wanted to offer you a new accessory to jazz up your Little Navy Dress. Marcia, our new studio assistant has been working hard to help us get our Special Edition Frill Attachment ready in time for the holidays. Here she explains the creative process behind it:
This attachment derives from giving Antithesis’ basic shift dress the ‘Wow Factor’ at a festive party or a New Year’s celebration. We started off as a simple frill but size was an issue at the beginning. We were not sure whether to go for the larger frill or the toned down smaller frill. The deciding vote went to the large frill but we still felt it was a little too plain. I then went to do some trimming research to find the supplementary part for this attachment. Low and behold I found an amazing gold pipe trimming that complemented the colour of the frill. I presented this to the team and we still felt it was missing that extra special effect. Renée then suggested feathers, which then took the attachment to a league of its own. We ended up using a French partridge fringe in the natural shade, which completed the frill attachment. Rethinking trimmings is essential and has made an amazing modification to the Little Navy Dress.
