First, let’s describe this dress. OCTAVIA is a beautiful, unique, classy, and sophisticated dress with a v-neckline, fitted waist, full skirt, separating gold zipper in back, and slip pockets. The color is brown and black. According to color psychology, a few attributes to the color brown are honesty, quality, and stylish sophistication. As per the color black, it is associated with strength, elegance, and protection. Black is also an essential component of all other colors.
My dresses are purposely named after women determined to rise and shine. Each piece is inspired by the courageous and positive elements of that mother, sister, daughter, and friend who pushes towards her goals. This dress, in particular, is named in honor of my mother. To me, she exemplified all the qualities above mentioned and more. In the area of style, my mom loved toaccentuate and cinch her waist, I believe because she grew up in the era of Christian Dior. Today, I can say that the love of garments made with quality and elegance is a trait she embedded in my spirit.
