Sassy, masculine, outlandish, outrageous. The daring and extravagant Aimee Crocker took the Victorian Era by storm, shocking and enthralling the elite society of the time.
Here's my line inspired by the Sacramento-native.
She was named a princess, twice! She wore pants and smoked cigars and adopted children. She was like the Angelina Jolie/Paris Hilton of the 1870s.
She bent the rules and lived life with no regrets, she even wrote a book about it entitled, "And I do It Again." She traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, she was well known for her lavish parties and many adoring suitors.
She was a fun person to study and a fun person to design for. This line needed more garments and the blue cocktail dress is a little to prom now that it's all over, I should have used a print and more colors.
I love the way the boots came out. I feel they really convey the Victorian feel for the collection.
