PICTURE: #3 IN SIXTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
LUCIA HWONG GORDON TALKS ABOUT HER 3rd OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Ungaro citrus chiffon blouse and matching layered, slit skirt
Roberta Freymann necklace made in India
Carnelian bracelets from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul
Coral earrings designed by Dorotea Liguori in Capri.
Dior shoes from Paris.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
When they showed me the chiffon ensemble at Ungaro, I thought it would be perfect for any glamorous summer black tie event anywhere in the world.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
This outfit is put together spontaneously each time with different accessories. The citrus chiffon ensemble is a statement in itself!
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
10 – I feel like a bird of paradise in this colorful, flowing dress.
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The stunning summer colors, draped sensual cut and flowing chiffon billowing around the legs with a sexy, slit skirt makes you want to give a good swaying walk and the look is especially effective when dancing.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I love wearing this at special events in hot, sultry weather—maybe Brazil during the carnival.
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?
I have wonderful memories of dancing in this dress in glamorous festive parties in St. Tropez, Southampton, Istanbul and Shanghai. Added travel and style bonus, the dress packs beautifully!
