Vera Wang – Pleats


Vera Wang uses pleats a lot in her designs. I adore the dresses that i’ve seen designed by Vera and I love some of the more fitted mermaid tail style ones. The dark black and grey dress looks a lot like that worn by the Corpse Bride in Tim Burtons movie and is suitably gothic for a halloween type event.

As shown in her designs the pleats can be applied to cocktail dresses and full length gowns as well as tops which is something that I had debated incorporating into my designs after I had viewed work by Issey Miyake. However I think if I was to have someone model my clothes I would rather there was some  movement and a sense of emotion such as joy especially if they are modelling a wedding dress. I like the clothes to capture and reflect the personality of the person and this is best achieved by a more natural pose.
