Designer Sarah Beth Johnson on Sarah Parker Rice Goodwin
Seacoast designer, Sarah Beth Johnson, found inspiration in Sarah Goodwin's dress. She comments:
"What I took from the original dress as my inspiration were patterns. I loved the combination of a tiny floral print with bold stripes. Pair that with a flirty, multi-layered ruffle skirt, and I had an idea for an 80's-style party dress, with a nod to the 19th century.
Lace details and a bold belt brought this design together for me. I love developing young, modern twists on fabulous trends from fashion's history and this Portsmouth piece intrigued me."
Sarah's work will appear in the upcoming 2012 exhibition and publication.
