18th Century Inspired: Antoinette Collection

I love modern items that are historically inspired! The lovely Samalia has designed a collection inspired by Antoinette and 18th century French fashion.

I find each of her pieces takes an element from the period and with a modern eye, she created lovely garments that echo those details.  The designs are youthful and, well, just fun!  I could certainly see myself going to a soiree or two this spring in her dresses!

She is posting images of the garments on her blog: Samalia: Daily Confessions of a Fashion Designer.  Check out the collection as it goes up!
