So Green, So Young --- Day 13/48

Walk: Hood
Distance: 5.5 miles

Here is the After the Ball section of the de Young Museum's current exhibition
of San Franciso couture over the years*.  All were worn by local philanthropists and fashionistas or carefully preserved unworn by couture department stores. Which ones jump immediately to your eye?

Edwin Oudshoorn (Dutch, b. 1980 dba Edwin Oudshoorn, est. 2005),
Spellbound Gown with Detached Sleeves and Pin , 2020, 

Ciwt is green girl so her eye went to - or was Spellbound by - the rich warm green one.  It is timelessly lavish but, even so, Ciwt was surprised to learn it was created by the youngest designer in the show, Edwin Oudshoorn, a Dutchman. 

* Fashioning San Francisco: A Century of Style, deYoung Museum, January 20 - August 11, 2024
