Lanvin inspired off the shoulders denim dress


The Refashioners always been a yearly inspirational series for me. I love challenges that get people reinventing something that once-was and making it up-to-date.  Check out the details of my refashion over the Makery’s blog.

“They (jeans) have expression, modesty, sex appeal – all I hope for in my clothes.” -a very insightful quote from Yves Saint-Laurent and perfect challenge motto.


Spoiler alert…. only 3 pairs of jeans were used to make this cute outfit.

The embroidery work is inspired by Gucci interpretation of Tian prints. If you are into fashion & history of art I highly recommend looking at their latest work. It was inspired by “Bird and Flower’ Chinese 10th century painting.
