Tomorrow, I am going to wear a Samuel Dong Gown so I went last monday to the maison mère to choose it. It was very difficult to find the one, I looooved them all. Samuel Dong is among my most cherished designers here in Montreal. I was always in Awe in front of his romantic fashion shows, the volumes in some of his dresses or the retro cuts on some others. As a journalist/blogger, I can’t allow myself to wear very extravagant dresses – I just admired them from far instead. But I have to tell you, I was lost on a sea of fabulous haute couture dresses and each one amazed me. I really enjoyed the afternoon I spent with his team, they are extraordinaire. Anyhow, time to introduce you five dresses from his collections I tried on, that I tought were in harmony with the theme of the ball.
The white queen dress… with less volume
The Red Queen… With a wink to students who fight for their future and the future of other generations
Alice in Green … Vive la journée de la terre
The Surrealist Dress… I know it doesn’t really fit me (at all) but I think I heard her saying ”wear me”
So the dress That I will be wearing for the daffodil ball is … No, I can’t say which one until tomorrow afternoon :) But you, tell me which one you like best ?
