Helen-PattonCollection: “A Trunk in the Atti”

My inspiration originated from old photos of my grandmother, great grandmother, as well as one of my favorite movies “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” I was inspired by the simple silhouette of the late twenties and the lavish details and embellishments that were used to add jazz. I was fascinated by the fact that something so minimalistic could become extravagant through a simple detail change in fabric or embroidery.
