A gown from Elizabeth Kennedy's Spring how-to make a bodice 2018 Collection For her Spring 2018 Collection, Elizabeth Kennedy joined forces with her husband, contemporary artist Igor Bogojevic , and the results are nothing short of spectacular. The collaboration features the abstract horses of Bogojevic's iconic works of ink on paper, translated onto organza as flocked prints and beaded embroideries on silk faille. The gorgeously crafted separates, evening gowns and cocktail dresses are reminiscent of the 1930's surrealist era. As Elizabeth states, "The intention was to re-create the dream-like state of Igor's artwork that features abstract horses and florals as well as various motifs from the [surrealist] movement". Indeed the translucent fabrics, troupe l'oeil appliqués and whimsical drapery evoke the work of Man Ray and René Magritte. Designing the Spring 2018 Elizabeth Kennedy Collection Elizabeth's gowns have been the top choice during gala and award season for celebrities like Oprah, Sharon Stone and many other glitterati. Her ascent in the fashion world as one of the most sought after American couturiers is no surprise, the Parson's graduate was designing runway collections for Izaac Mizrahi and Donna Karen by the time she was 22 and has swiftly made waves with her own namesake brand. Kennedy's attention to every stitch of her creations is apparent. From hand sewing thousands of beads onto a custom gown, to constructing a corset from scratch in her Midtown Manhattan atelier, the gowns are works of art. Elizabeth Kennedy & Igor Bogojevic Collaboration for the Spring 2018 Collection Igor brings life and depth to the horses of his drawings and paintings and the energy and this energy crosses over to Elizabeth's gowns.
