By ANTIK BATIK -
Discover a true gem in this versatile tunic dress. Front of dress is embroidered with metallic sequins & beads assembling geometric patterns at dress openings such as neckline, front yoke, sleeve cuffs and bottom sweep. Body of dress is composed of a paisley motif amidst parallel, figure flattering sequined columns. Dropped waistband is framed with side ties and when cinched, bodice blouses over waistline. Modest shirring stems from upper sleeve and lower cuff hem and then finished with a double button loop closure. Outfit as a dress or wear over skinny black pants as a tunic.
Born in Italy, Gabriella Cortese learned embroidery and dressmaking from her grandmother before moving to Paris to study art at age 18. Antik Batik was inspired by Cortese's travels and experiences: A job at the Crazy Horse in Paris revealed the sensuality of the body, Balinese artisans taught her the craft of Batik, and travels in India exposed her to exquisite hand-dyeing and embroidery techniques.
