Designer Tony Mentel says: I wanted to include the designer’s thoughts about his gorgeous creation. Here’s what he shared with us, “This dress has a real 1950's feeling about it, there is a sweet elegance to it, imagine Doris Day or Audrey Hepburn. I designed the Rose Embroidery based on an original 1950's couture design, I saw in a Paris Couture Vintage Store. It creates dimensional just by the yarns being sewn in different directions. The Organza Skirt makes the dress move well and adds a light summer feel to it.”
