Emilie Floge inspired dress

Last night was the perfect opportunity to wear the latest Emilie Floge dress. My friend and professional artist Deborah Macy had an opening exhibit at the Gallery X downtown New Bedford. I’m a big fan of her art and she is a big fan of my dresses. In turn she and I collaborated in a painting where I posed for her wearing one of my gowns. She added so much detail to the dress it was incredible. It was the first time I saw it in person. We displayed the gown side to side with the painting to give viewers a feel of what went into the painting. It was a lot of fun sharing the experience with others. 







OK sewing world, here is my second Emilie Floge inspired dress. I feel like these dresses belong to everyone to enjoy. It is truly a work of art. I’m very happy with it.

Again, I love the elongating lines of Emilie Floge dress designs. Have a great we…

It's such a powerful connector. Enjoy!

The excitement of sewing it lasted right through the finish. I couldn’t seem to place it down. The feel of this dress is beyond comfortable. It’s powerful. A different kind of beauty. The dress itself sets it’s own stage commanding anyone in it’s presence. When I first put it own, it looked like it belonged in a painting. After the photos were taken I realized why Emilie Floge went for these lines. She must have played with different fabric layouts and photograph…

This is my first Emilie Floge inspired dress. It’s nothing like I’ve ever created before. The design flowed right out of my head well into the life of fabric. The excitement of sewing it lasted right through the finish. I couldn’t seem to place it down. The feel of this dress is beyond comfortable. It’s powerful. A different kind of beauty. The dress itself sets it’s own stage commanding anyone in it’s presence. When I first put it on, it looked like it belonged in a painting. After the photos were taken I realized why Emilie Floge went for these lines. She must have played with different fabric layouts and photography to see what worked well for an artist  perspective. It’s no surprise that an artist like Gustav Klimt used her dresses in his paintings and his paintings in her dresses. They were both incredible artists.









A couple of weeks ago I discovered Emilie Floge. She was the life long companion of Gustav Klimt the Austrian symbolic painter. You may know him from the painting “The…
