Radish Underground Exclusive....

Hey Everybody,

Every month at Radish Underground (414 SW 10th Ave in Portland) they have a featured designer, usually debuting their collection to the store. March was the featured month for Reif, and the launch of their men's section. Celeste and Gina, the owners, asked me to create an exclusive garment to be featured in the shop for the month.

Here are some photos, I don't have a name for it yet, but I sure do like it. It's made from a super soft cotton broadcloth with sheer details. The dress is inspired by a vintage Chanel dress that was a short, strapless black dress with a sheer layer on top, creating the illusion of a longer dress with cap sleeves. I really loved it, and decided to try to create this same illusion in my dress. If you look at it up close you can see the sheer, but from a distance it looks like you're only wearing a strapless dress with a white choker.

There are only two more of these dresses left at the store, you'd better get them while you can!
