Fringe

gold and black Maria Clara gown There are many lovely modern interpretations of the Maria Clara gown, a Spanish colonial-era style of dress now considered formal Filipiniana attire. Unfortunately, I don't consider this one of them. This would make me feel like I was wearing curtains or a bedspread! I am not going to identify the designer, for obvious reasons.

Fringe is IN this season ;)
But seriously, I could see a lot of work have gone into it!

Nice work, but I agree that it is very heavy.

Reminds me of the phrase, "A surrey with the fringe on top." Not very attractive I think. :)

I strongly agree with you. Quite strange:)

I can see why this reminds you of curtains. I feel the same way.
