Fall in Love with this Romantic Rose Crochet Gown
Many crochet and fashion fans have already fallen in love with this romantic rose crochet gown
I wanted to see more views of the dress, learn more about it, find out who made it, and for what occasion(s) it was worn.
Information about the gown eluded me at every turn.
It was Crocheters Anonymous© member Michelle who pointed me to a blog entry by Kit Couture that provided enough basic information to learn more.1
Even with the names of the designer and magazine finally at hand, just finding the information in this little article required hours of research and fact-checking. I could sure have used the help of my Vietnamese friends for the interpretations, but alas, they were unavailable, so I forged forth on my own. ♥
These romantic rose crochet gowns are the creations of fashion designer Lý Quý Khánh.
Lý Quí Khánh (Ly Quy Khanh) actually worked in the furniture business for many years. Along the way, he became drawn toward and then impassioned with fashion.
After extensive research and self teaching, he quickly bloomed large among the young stars of Vietnam’s fashion world with his nostalgic, royal style elevated by touches of bold innovation and modernity. He is influenced by European fashion, and is known for his meticulous embroidery and beautiful laces.2
He chose his name as his fashion label, signifying his determination to rise to the top of the fashion world. And rise he has.
Lý Quí Khánh’s rose crochet gown, part of his Antique Passion collection, was featured in Ấn tượng Đẹp Fashion Show 10 (“Impressive Beautiful Fashion Show 10”), where he was one of only ten designers chosen to showcase his collection.
The show was held at the Nguyen Du Indoor Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The catwalk was transformed to complement each collection, from punk rock to ballet to outer space. For the Lý Quí Khánh collection, Antique Passion, the catwalk resembled a black and white chessboard with grey walls adorned with classical lion heads.3
