Gilda utilizes cottons, linens, silks, woven, in all their different forms, textures and threads; sometimes even synthetics, just for fun.She likes to focus on varying the scale, the proportions, and the finishing of those basic forms which she considers insuperable, and above all working the textile with the most exquisite manual techniques, from the primitive beeswax batik to the ancient shibori of Japan, with pigments ranging from the traditional plant-based to silicone, plaster and even iron oxide. The only rules are to maintain quality, guarantee comfort and create beauty. To achieve this, anything goes!
The Hole Silk Velvet Dress is no exception to what magical things Gilda creates. This one-size-fits-most ultra silky dress seems to float on your skin. You can pair it with the long sleeve cotton under dress for an added layer, or simply throw on and float your way to any party. Sleeveless and fluid. You will feel like you aren't wearing anything. Look closely for clues to the Guava plant used in the dyeing.
