Silk habotai, silk crepe satin, hand painted French chantilly leavers lace, Swarovski crystals
A custom set of two ouvert tap pants created for a private bespoke client. The same pattern is used for both pieces, with a flowing bias cut and completely open back that closes with a button and silk loop. Side panels of scalloped French leavers lace were inserted to match other styles from ready-to-wear collections. Both pieces were further embellished with hand cut, painted and sewn symmetrical lace motifs, highlighted with sew-on Swarovski crystals.
