Esme Palaganas writes a love letter to Jane Austen by substituting paper for pleated organza, stained in bloody reds, midnight blues, and mossy greens. Picture a chic librarian, with her long loose low pony and cat eye specs, walking down the runway dressed in lazy cable knit dresses and cocoon like coats. Cest chic!
The pleated organza piped with bias tape is sheer genius
Trade in fringe details for soft pleats
The beauty and the geek
