Printed Cynthia Rowley Dress

Happy Monday!  As some of you may know I have been Cynthia Rowley’s fit model for over 2 years.  I love her as a person and a designer.  She is involved in all areas of her business and it is inspiring to be around a talented, hard working, hilarious woman!

For the past 6 years I have been a seasoned fit model for many designers in NYC. “A fit model is a person who is used by a fashion designer or clothing manufacturer to check the fit, drape and visual appearance of a design on a ‘real’ human being, effectively acting as a live mannequin. A person is selected to work as a fitting model primarily on criteria matching the desired measurement specifications of the designer or manufacturer. These specifications generally consist of height, bust-waist-hip circumference, arm and leg length, shoulder width, and a myriad other measurements as indicated by the garment type. Beyond merely wearing the garment for inspection, a fitting model can become an integral role in the design process; commenting on garments and materials with regards to fit, movement and feel on flesh, and objective feedback on the ‘fit’ and design of the garment in the stead of the consumer. Ultimately, a fitting model aids in confirming that the sizing, design and cut of the garment to be produced meets the designer’s specifications and intentions.”  (Wikipedia)

OK, now back to this beautiful dress.  This printed charmeuse flounce dress is one of my favs from the Spring season.  It is super chic and flattering because the fit is perfect (of course it “fits” me perfectly..LOL).  Not to mention it is currently on sale at Cynthia Rowley.  Score! I styled this look with my to-die-for Sophia Webster heels, my new Chanel bag that was a birthday gift we found in Mykonos (swoon) and some jewels.  You can also wear this dress with flats and wear it in the fall with tights and booties.  CPW:)
