About the dress: Designed for and inspired by Fashion Magazine Alberta Editor, Caroline Gault. Combining Nicole Campre’s relaxed, tailored aesthetic with Caroline’s feminine style, Nicole transformed a total of 15 meters of silk crepe into a gown.
The form and shape of the transformable design, can transition from a gown to a maxi coat, with sleeves or without sleeves. The neckline is plunging, caplette falling back with a high leg slit to balance the fabric mass. The gown is a deep rose colour in honour of the Heart Truth Foundation and all the sufferers affected.
The Caroline will be produced and sold internationally in a shorter, more wearable, blazer version where all proceeds of the red jacket will go towards Canada’s Heart and Stroke Foundation.
