>> That's exactly what I thought of -- that chant "Miss Mary Mack" that we all used to sing as kids. And it's not surprising, considering that Hartmann Nordenholz's collection featured lots of big, white buttons running down the backs of their lovely dresses. But the standout feature? The pleating. There's diagonal pleating on the bodices, big pleated butterfly sleeves, a pleated bustle, and of course, the requisite pleated skirts (all below). The collection is refreshing...playful...spring-y. And it's giving me this uncanny desire to get a mask and wear it as a hat. Not joking. I'm seriously considering it.
The rest of this yummy collection can be seen here.
