    These are really gorgeous, and actually kind of help me parse what patterns/prints/decorative motifs are going on in each look. . . makes me want to take pictures of my mom’s best dishes and see if I can print them on fabric.

    China Doll indeed! Amazing prints and fabrics! I wonder if she had them custom made, either way they’re beautiful! Did you see Christopher Kane’s? What did you think of his grandma’s chic collection?
