The inspiration for this dress came from a bit of fashion history! I love the figure flattering shapes of the 50s and 60s, but with the glamour and drama of the 1920s. Additionally, I was inspired to create the weaving pattern from my heritage. I am a Guatemalan-American, and weaving is a big part of the textile industry in Guatemala. I've always wanted to try the technique, so I thought "What better time to incorporate it than into my prom dress?"
