non ho mai visto un corsetto così bello e pieno di dettagli, oltretutto il velluto rosso riempie tutto di poesia e voluttuosità, le perle poi... ah le perle sono favolose! danno quel tocco di luce poco invadente che solo loro sanno dare.
In ogni caso adoro le tue foto e le trovo sempre bellissime :D

grazie per il link, studio moda e adoro i vestiti, quindi non hai idea di quanto mi abbia fatto piacere dare una sbirciatina. ovviamente sono fatti a venezia, non esiste luogo più magico per creare abiti *.*

The most amazing part of this photo for me was that I knew it was the mask of the Red Death before I even looked at the title. You've captured an image that cam from just words. Absolutely stunning.

That isn't even getting into the amazing outfit and stunning photography. Way to go on the model too - that mask looks heavy and so does that necklace.
