This modern day rococo Moonlight dress was inspired by late night lawn parties under moonlit tents, where champagne is poured freely, big hair is piled into royal sculptures and faces are painted with pink blush and fake moles. Pass the mini sandwiches and cakes and get ready to skinny dip in fountains.

Adorned with the new Venus print, which was invoked by memories of museum visits.  At the Musée D’Orsay, I was especially moved by Bouguereau’s rendition of the birth of Venus. Today, that painting represents so much nostalgia that it’s a great way to bring that feeling and the beauty of Venus into my latest collection. More than that, the painting brings, too, the gorgeous feelings of a museum: The hustle and bustle of the entrance, tickets, lockers, peeling off of coats, then the hush of rooms and galleries; soaking up the art, surrounded by quiet groups; whispering kids on school trips, a tour guide describing themes to small gatherings, wood floors creaking under shoes; that moment you see a piece that speaks to you - staring hard, and feeling a sudden burst of creativity, something intangible to take home. Afterward, a little sandwich, cakes in parchment paper, and maybe a spritzer in the restaurant where light floods the room and people chatter, legs tired from hours wandering through the exhibitions. Exit through the gift shop to find a little book, a pencil, any pocketful of inspiration beckoning you, and perhaps a masterpiece captured on a postcard, a memory of your inspiring moment. I can’t wait for those days again... Covid, in a strange way, has illuminated the simple pleasures of life we took for granted.
