Pleated Prints

pleated prints


This is all about a little bit of extra being just enough, its taking a strut into classic fun. For those who know me, you know I’m about edge and classic with a hint of unpredictable, I’d have to say this is one of those moments. I wanted to have fun by mixing the patterns of crosses and cheetah print together (would that have been considered a blood sacrifice in biblical times lol). Mixing dominate prints together is an automatic attention catcher. The key to pattern blending is to compliment, not necessarily to flow. This concept typically yields fashion acceptance hence its questionable at first sight. Be wise about pattern choices in order to induce a retrospective positive response at second glance. Not to toot my own horn, but I added the suffix- ER to sick because the look got sicker with the elegant presence of my vertical faux leather skirt. The pleats play an interim role as the additional pattern, just not in traditional print style, but in a 3D disposition. Do you get that concept? Think about it. Pleats are considered a pattern/textile, hence making it a specific shape, this is just another way to mix match print through form (when they ask you who taught you this say Shenell Dujour, aye lol). Now, mixing all three together I found it to be busy, fun and appealing. About this animal on your girls shoulder, this is my official strut with my Coming to America 100% Fox fur as an accessory. You just witnessed my ability to possess that Jackie O charm and exclusivity. This is how you elevate the value of rich, fun, and classic. As always I enjoyed you guys and see you next runway!
