The Lux Velvet Collection is inspired by a decadent Bohemian vibe and from vintage undergarments from other eras. I've decided to make a few items in velvet for the sheer purpose of feeling a little bit of luxury close to your body.
I have a limited amount of vintage velvet silk fabric in my stash and had these items in my mind. This collection of velvet is 100% silk. Velvet is often worn during the cooler months, and it is a wonderfully comfortable, cozy, feel good fabric you want to add to your wardrobe. It is a classic textile that you will want to wear again, year after year. With proper care, these pieces will become heirloom clothing.
It started with my ever so luxurious and soft Boho Top. This top is roomy, has lots of connected pieces, a deep v-neck for layering over a pretty cami or lace collar. The Athena Bra is inspired by a 50's bathing suit top. Who doesn't want a velvet bra? The Cropped Camisole is inspired from a vintage corset cover. This is a great piece on its own, but also layers nicely over a blouse or long or short sleeve T-shirt. Add an accessory and you have an elegant top. The Corset Top has princess seams and off-the shoulder bands and comes in other colors and fabrics.
