Time management issues almost did me in this week. I thought I was in good shape — inspired by ancient Roman archways, columns and stairways, I’d designed my custom prints and created my fabric early in the week, and sketched out my day-to-night Roman holiday collection. But I didn’t count on getting Very Sick right when I needed to be pulling things together.
Melania walked the runway in this Roman evening look: a crisp tunic in the stairways print over a floaty black crepe underskirt. Other looks in the collection: a casual day-look version of the tunic in the columns print over arches print slim ankle pants; a day-to-dinner two piece dress — a sleeveless crop top over a high-waisted gored midi skirt, featuring all three prints. I’d love to be the winner, but at this point I’m just happy to have made it down the final runway.
