Over the summer I had the privilege of creating this extraordinary opening night look for actor Alexandra Socha.
Her role in Head Over Heels, the good natured, rule following Philoclea, needed to show her sexy side on the Red Carpet.
Keeping in mind her stunning costume by GENIUS designer Arianne Pihillips, featuring Adam and Eve on her cape, we came up with using the creation motif to move this look from stage to evening as a related….but very different side of Socha.
Her slight frame and blunt bob meant that I could do ALMOST ANYTHING and it was going to look sensational, and her edge would likely come across.
The artfully placed creation hands and the simple mesh bodice and faux leather skirt hang together perfectly to make a sweet silhouette into a sexy number for a post opening, jaw dropping, hit!
I’m all about finding inspiration in custom looks and tweaking things to be just right for you, but nobody likes a knock off.
If you’re feeling super inspired by Alexandra Socha’s one-of-a-kind zero waste dress, but want to try and get the look without the custom price tag….look no further. I’m deeply into DIY, and feel that the future of fashion, and moving into a sustainable world is all about being modular, and taking the pieces you want and ditching the rest.
You can get the creation hands as an iron on patch here, and DIY your own look!
