The CAPE: The Hero is Back

The Cape: The Hero is Back
FALL 2019

The hero is back.

"The only piece of fashion that feels like a magical cocoon with super powers". -lisa

Alberta Ferretti. Max Mara. Alexander McQueen. Georges Hobeika. Elie Saab. Talbot Runoff. Valentino. Paco Robanne.

"The CAPE has been around for centuries. 

Just 5 years ago it swept the runways again with a passion; morphing into modern gowns with cape-like chiffon overlays, detachable bridal trains, 50's french coquette styles, weekend cafe wraps to hooded haute couture". 

"I'm never getting rid of my black velvet cape. NEVER.
It makes me feel like a little girl who's living a big dream".

The Spirit of Ziegfeld

The Spirit of Ziegfeld
October 2019


The feathers. The fringe. The headpieces. 

The dedication. The drama. The show.

"The ZIEGFELD SPIRIT lives on. 

You just need to be reminded". -lisa

"Hollywood royalty & The Ziegfeld Follies gave us all empowerment;  To live with a little less fear in front of the camera. Everyone could be someone special, beautiful and part of history.  Current fashion trends are showing signs of returning to the era of a softer beauty often complete with pin curls, bow lips, satin and diamonds". - lisa

Calling it POPTIMISM.
