My two passions, clothes making and photography, reunited in a series of pictures, thanks to the beautiful and adorable Maria Host, who accepted to model one of my dress while I took her picture.
I met Maria during a cocktail party and it became evident to me that her poise and elegance would make her the perfect model for my designs… Born in Milan to an Indonesian mother and a Serbian – German father she possess the kind of international beauty which cannot really be identified but instantly mesmerize you… Besides, she is also very friendly and interesting to talk to!

As for the dress, I remember finding this black and white stripped silk organza in my local fabric store and immediately falling in love with it! Although there was only one small piece left, I knew it would be enough for a simple but elegant cocktail dress… To add a twist to it, I included two see through black panels; one at the waist and the other at the bottom of the skirt. To be honest, Organza isn’t the easiest fabric to work with as it is very slippery and stretchable. The hardest part was probably to match properly all the lines together but after spending days hand beading an Alexander McQueen jacket… It didn’t seem so hard after all ;-)
In the end, I was really happy with the result and even more when I saw it on Maria! As there is nothing better than seeing your work on someone else… And in this case, it looked as it was made just for her! What do you think?
More photos with Maria (my new muse ;-) will be coming out next month so stay tuned!
Thank you again Maria!!!
