Diane Mini

Orelie's note:

This pleated mini dress is made in stretch and soft fabric with lace strip but I can make it in silk if you prefer (price may vary)

Because I seek to maintain Haute Couture standards I was used to when working for prestigious houses in Paris, I'll make for you this mini dress with the finest fabric and I'll take the same care I used to take for Haute Couture pieces.

The Diane dress (the long one that I shortened to make this one) reminds me my grandmother who used to wear this type of refined dresses inside her house


The pleating:
The craft of pleating is fascinating and the possibilities are endless: These trained artisans bring forms imagined by the designer to life, and transforms fabric into spectacular sculpted volume with texture and graceful movement

While working for the most prestigious houses in Paris as a seamstress, I've seen some pieces of fabric transformed into works of art by pleating craftsmen

There is even a sense of luxury in a pleated garment as it uses much more fabrics than a non-pleated garment
By the way, in ancient Egypt, pleats were seen as a symbol of power and luxury
