Tailoring and fit are related. but how did he mesh the two with his intricate pieces.

“It’s a little bit of both I want it to fit well but the tailoring comes in to just my own particularities. If I decide I want it to be a little snug here and over there a bit more loose fitting.

Although the dresses of Rafael Cox’s line are my personal favorite canada goose citadel france 2015 . the designer has many tricks and styles up his sleeves. “Dresses are much more easier but to me you shouldn’t run away from a challenge. you should want to embrace it. especially with designing.
