Accordion


Wearing: Magdelena Velevska skirt, Aqua dress, Asos clutch, Zu heels, NARS Jungle Red lipstick.

I first spotted this work of art by Magdelena Valevska back during her show at RAFW earlier this year, and from the moment these asymmetrically cut knife pleats came down the runway she raised the bar not only for pleats, but for skirts altogether. How can something so architecturally blunt still be light and flowing? I've paired it over this backless bodycon dress, while the indented cut at the front frames together with the skirt perfectly.
