Recognizing Beauty

Sometimes I look at a design pattern on a girls’ dress and it’s clear what it is. It’s a giraffe. It’s a daisy. Oh look, it’s another butterfly. But then there are the precious times where the design is something more of a mystery. I might not know what the animal is, but it makes me laugh. The flower type might be unrecognizable but it sure is beautiful. I welcome these times when the design elements are more emotional and physical. Not everything needs to be so cut and dry. Sometimes something just has to make you feel good.

The basis behind the design of the Marilyn Dress by designer Dagmar Daley is just that. It’s not what the shapes are. It’s how they make you feel. These lovely white arrangements on the pattern almost resemble pussywillow shadows. Or fluffy cotton explosions. Or delightful little dandelions, ready to blow while you make a wish. Who knows? I really have no idea. But the main thing is how they make you feel.

When you look at the dress, it’s as light as a feather. It gives you this serene feeling of sheer happiness. The light flow of the cotton and the lovely empire waist evoke even more of an airy emotion. And if something can attribute a serene feeling to the whirlwind that is a young girl…well, I’ll take two.
