Korto was inspired by a dramatic flower in shades ranging from orange to yellow. She chose creamsicle and ochre textiles in charmeuse and created a gown with a deep, plunging neckline and a train with a vent with an inserted panel. A tired-looking ivory lace with beading embellishments was used in two side panels and as trim along the back. Thankfully, she edited the lace down to a more diminutive use, because she had originally intended to cover most of the back with this problematic textile. I had difficulty seeing Korto's point of view in this gown, but she was confident that it was there. Thankfully, she's moving forward!
