Stephanie Henly titled her first collection 'LONG-STITCH' which forms the design direction and detailing of her couture pieces. This stitch type is featured in the pinafore vest to dart, seam and mold to the body.
This low-cut gown balances hard to soft elements of a structural vest overlay with molded shoulder peaks with the fluid and lightweight silk skirt with open split side seams. The skirt consists of four meters of multiple layered sheer silk georgette that features hand frayed edges that creates beautiful flow in movement. The unattached side seams adds an element of sexiness with slight skin visibility.
The over layer of the structural embroidered top create full bust covering from the silk lining and molded fit fastening at the waist due to the folding and stiffed fabrication. The sleeves are created through the catchment of the excess yarns in a cuff at the wrist.
This iconic dress was awarded Couture Gown of the year at Fashion Awards Australia. Debuted on the runway at Virgin Australian Fashion Festival 2017.
