TREND>FABRIC>Perfect Pleats and Ruffled Gowns

Seamwork this season was impressive. Carlos Miele in his brazilian themed collection was the tailor from Ipanema. Attention to detail and texture became so apparent that the lack of elaboration and pattern that was, could be overlooked. Gowns were fluid and elegant with tiers of ruffles as pleated dress demonstrated fine craftsmanship.
