pecial order for Nancy, this piece starts with a fairly tailored
Wrangler beige denim vest. Dana and I worked on picking the fabrics to
glitz it up enough that it could be worn at the Ritz. Initially, the
sequins appliqué was selected, and it became the building block for the
rest of the piece. Dana and I first debated the choice of palette,
warm, red and golden or lupine blue. The warmth won out, so we dove
through my treasure trunk, looking for the right fabrics. We selected a
reddish, burnt orange piece of sari for the back, and a heavily adorned
remnant of pallu from another sari for the collar. All that was left to
find was the black and gold yoke. The Western buttons were discarded
for some gold buttons that would help showcase the lapel decorations:
some earrings of old that were retooled and stitched. Finally some
discreet gold beading and voila!
For the meaning of the name… ask Dana!
