Behind the Seams : Krista's 40 under 40 Gown

In the custom industry, when booked to work a design project often times you don't know what to expect. It is both ways--- as the designer and the client. Often times, the custom experience is many of my clients first experience getting garments made specifically for them and their vision. So was the case for Krista! It was my first time working with Krista so we both entered into a collaboration together not knowing where we'd go. Luckily, It was amazing, seamless, beautiful collaboration that I pray continues for a very long time. Allow me to show my work with the gorgeous, elegant, and stylish Krista.

Krista's husband, Mr. Cedric Brooks, received the honors of being recognized for Memphis's 40 under 40 elite urban professionals. Accompanying, her husband of course, Krista wanted to look very classy and elegant yet portray elements of her personal style. She had a vision of how she wanted to look and the gown inspiration. Krista and I had a very intimate and detailed consultation that reminded me of why I chose to work with certain clients and the need to always stay true to my design aesthetic.

I design for women like Krista! It is my desire to design for beautiful women who love to show their refined femininity with class and integrity yet keep the essence of personal style. She was indeed a byAndreaFenise woman.
