Tailored Vest: Magician Print
- Estelle worked with an esteemed local artist to create this prints. Estelle gave her a brief and this is what she created- she literally photographed all kinds of trinkets and vintage brooches to create this awe inspiring, breathtaking print. To use the term ‘Wearable Art’ is an understatement! So please appreciate that not only are you purchasing a handmade, custom made garment, you're also purchasing a piece of wearable art.
Thr story behind the vest pattern is also wonderful; Estelle collaborated with her cousin from ‘Denis Raftopoulos Tailoring’ who created this vest for her. The pattern used is an original pattern that her uncle created when he was a renowned local tailor in the 1950’s/60’s. The craftsmanship of this vest is so exquisite that it is a couture piece.
The print is printed locally on velvet. The blazer is fully lined and the back exposes the lining of butterflies and foliage.
