When I think of spring I think about a dress like this, it has just the sort of feel I have in mind.
This spring I am attending a royal or an aristocratic wedding (not sure), hosting a soiree, chairing a charity ball (which is not easy nor not exhausting); hanging at home in the evenings, Saturday barbecuing, and some gardening, etc. This dress would take me clear through the season impeccably, if I dare wear it more than once. It is just too memorable a dress.
The peach is apricot, stunning. A sunset, a bellini at sunset!
The price tag is probably between $5K and $25K. Really have no clue as to the cost of living these days. At any rate, anything in that collection could feed a family for a year, and there is a world for these dresses.
The seamstresses who created it are career ladies. They’ve honed an expertise and taken a mundane skill to higher standards, performance and talent to a higher level of construction.
There might have been 19 seamstresses that worked directly on the dress, then there is the number of people and business involved in getting all materials there, all well remunerated for their craft and supporting families while passing on their skills to achieve perfection, or so I like to tell myself.
But just for fun everyone, watch this trailer and do watch this movie, http://inequalityforall.com/ produced by Robert Reich, Secretary Labor under President Bill Clinton.
