So, sure she was on Project Runway, but that is not why I'm currently inspired by Carol Hannah.
Carol turned her childhood hobby into her fulltime profession, teaching herself the necessary skills of pattern making and draping. She fuses her southern charm and grace into each design by combining raw details of fabric appliques with organic shapes and classic styles.
Here are a few of my favorite dresses by Carol Hannah:
I love this shoulder detail!
Nothing makes me more excited about a designer than knowing that they started in a similar way and had success.
I hope walking the same path gets me to the same destination!
