“As a child I would revel in and devour all things related to historical costume; it is a passion of mine. Bygone eras of corsets, crinolines, explosions of lace, feathers, silks, satins, glinting jewels—all gilded to a state of heightened beauty and sartorial elegance.” – Sylvia Ji
Syvlia's signature red palette is highlighted by an assortment of jewel tones: deep crimsons, inviting purples and crisp emeralds with use of gold leaf to accentuate each piece. View more of her work after the jump:
