special guest/KATLEAN de MONCHY: talks about her 2nd outfit. #2 in ten acts









What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Dress – Zac Posen
Shoes – Miu Miu
Watch – Cartier tortue
Earrings – Christian Lacroix



How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
When I first tried the dress I was drawn to the fact that it had a shorter front than back and that the back was plunged. I had never worn anything like this before— that was exciting.



Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Spontaneously planned



On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit? 



What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
Love the silk, it’s slinky and sexy…Green is not a color I wear a lot but teamed up with the black it works…The dress is dramatic so it needed strong shoes and earrings…



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
SOON!!! However a print makes it recognizable so one has to wait in between wearings or to wear it with different groups of people.


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?
Intellectually this feels artistic. I am drawn to the dress as an expression of that artistic moment!
