Oh Wovenplay how I love you. Their clothes are the stuff of a childhood dream: fairies and faded ballerina costumes and vintage water dancers and a magic circus…Every piece is detailed and smart and considered. They are the clothes in my memory of being a girl, even though I was wearing a polyester bathrobe and dancing to Lawrence Welk at the time. Designer Katherine Edmonds is trained in traditional French dressmaking and her work is inspiring. I splurged on the Lola suit for Ada’s birthday last year and then planned a party around it. Wovenplay had a sample sale last week in Manhattan. (Oh New York how I love you). I think I am going to hide this dress away until Ada’s birthday for this year.
