Stylish Pleats & Gathers

Pleats and gathers are definitely back in fashion, but in a softer and subtle style, and definitely not the way we often associate pleats with kids’ clothing. And I’ve never been so excited about pleats and ruffles.

I’m captivated by the debut handmade collection of tunics, and dresses by Anna Kim of Lemon Story NYC. I love her modern understated style as well as the way she adds interest to the plain fabric with well-placed pleats, gathers and embellishment.
