special guest/ LUCIA HWONG GORDON TALKS ABOUT HER 11th OUTFIT: 11 in 16 acts










What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Nicole Miller flowing summer dress
Amethyst and blue topaz necklace, by Peggy Stephaich Guinness
Turquoise bracelets from Istanbul
Judith Ripka blue crystal ring
Dior gold sandals




How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
Love the flowing dress for summers in Southampton.  I can go from the pool or beach, zip myself in this iridescent gown and look fabulous instantly.




Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time? 
After I purchased the dress at the Madison Ave. Nicole Miller store, I realized I had the perfect necklace in blue topaz and amethyst to complement the lavender and blue of the gown.




On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
10! It is my Hampton summer butterfly dress




What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
Love the ease of the instant glamour with this dress.  I can take it off the hanger and I am ready for a garden party.  Also the full skirt keeps away anything from biting my ankles!





How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This gown is one of my summer favorites, especially for the Hamptons.




There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
Nicole Miller’s designs always give instant, easy glamour. It is so modern because it is not fussy for our fast life style. Just pull it out of the closet, no need to iron, one upward zip and you are done!  Couldn’t be more modern than that, instant gratification!
