Qristyl Frazier is the founder of the New York based fashion house for women with curves. As a designer, Qristyl specializes in feminine, flattering dresses with sophisticated separates, and now lingerie and swimsuits with versatile cover-ups all beyond perfection. No styles go out to a customer if it’s not perfect; It must be “beyond perfect”. “You won’t find the empire waist design dress here.”
Jean-Philippe Worth, 1894
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
"The sleeves and collar of this teagown reference the early 17th century, which was a common period for Worth to draw from. Although it appears to be a loose garment, the understructure is boned. Even though the garment would not have required such structure for its use, women were often more comfortable when retaining their armor. The economic use of fabric employing the selvedges as a decorative detail was also commonly practiced by Worth."
