Origami-inspired dress in deep black linen with clever overlapped layers, from LA-based Shaina Mote
Column dress with hidden deeply curved bare back and slight halter neckline, overlapped by back layer + apron-tied at waist, subtle layering at hem
Straight sheath falls to mid-shin, shaped by front princess seams, zips at low center back
Back overlay has long slender ties + contoured seaming
Experimentation encouraged! Cinch all layers together at waist.. Wrap ribbons around sheath only, and tie behind bare waist.. Cross ties behind back first then knot in front, to create a draped back train!
100% linen, dry clean to maintain clean silhouette
