the shell dress

Inspired by the elegant curves of the Tridacna clam, the shell dress has been delicately shaped by hand pleating silk organza.  Approximately 130 intricate pleats form the uniquely constructed bodice, while even more sinuous pleats curve themselves around the waist.  The longer hem at the front drapes in elegant waves towards the floor.  The simplicity and grace belies its detailed construction.
