The constant movement of ocean waves is timeless. That beauty is translated into fabric by giving the garment ruffles and movement when worn.

For some of the dresses, a fishing line technique was used on the hem to create bouncy movement. Attention to detail through handwork and relaxed silhouettes created the harmonious balance between the beauty of a woman and the beauty of the ocean: Amphitrite.
