Maison Fauve - Haut Vol Dress
About the Haut Vol Dress - (Flying High Dress)
There are dresses, and there is Haut Vol: a marked waist, a supple bust with a neckline emphasized by yokes that structure and make beautiful shoulders, a long dancing skirt whose front is worked by two quilted pleats that make the volumes blossom down the garment without accentuating the pelvis. New dress, but still the Fauve detail: a delicate indentation that reveals a cleavage. Wearing the Haut Vol dress means moving forward with a proud look, confident, ready to jump into your day... And feel yourself grow wings!
Select lightweight fabrics (80 to 200 g/m2) with more or less hold depending on the desired look. A viscose, a tencel, a cotton, a crepe, poplin, satin, or twill. A fluid fabric will give a supple fall, a fabric with a little hold will bring more puffiness.
