My 18th century gowns are inspired by history, but I am not a re-creationist. Color, texture, and ridiculously sumptuous fabrics inspire me. I love natural fabrics and hand-worked details. My work is is an exploration of the styles and construction of historical clothing with a focus on fancy dress attire and intimates. My gowns are inspired by the Era but not reproductions. Sometimes I throw in a modern or anachronistic twist- just to keep it interesting. Unlike fashion, which is made in a generic format- every detail is imagined and executed with the wearer in mind. These are personal projects. Please visit LaurenRossi.com to view my creations and learn more about my work.
