Traditionally the gown is a piece worn to formal events and black-tie affairs. However, the modern woman has taken the gown from the ballrooms and red carpets to the streets. The trend for some time now on many fronts has been to take unconventional pieces to events and shows. For one my previous posts I showed how tees, sweaters, and streetwear once reserved for the concrete jungle made its way onto front rows at fashion shows. The point here is that the gown can be edged up and worn out with the girls and still keep its elegant appeal.
I chose to take two contrasting accessories (Black & White) to turn up my look. My pointed toe white patent leather bootie which peeped out ever so slightly from beneath my dress and my black round shades. The umbrella was my bridge between the futuristic style of the gown and old China Town NYC. The result was a timeless look fusing edge and elegance before a classic New York backdrop.
