Madame Butterfly

Sometimes a garment leaps out at me, right off the vendor pic, and I know I HAVE to have it. Mohna Lisa Couture's special edition gown - Genesis Madame Butterfly - is one of them. The delicate butterfly and dragonfly print on gold silk is in such refreshing spring colours, and the cut is risque but flattering, with it's cut out bodice and slashed to the hip long skirt. The gown comes with a sparkling wrap and a shoulder embellishment (not shown), giving you some options for how to wear it. This is a wonderful gown for making a grand entrance!

Mohna Lisa designed this special edition gown, inspired by Puccini's opera of the same name, for the Opera Meets Couture event held on April 15th to raise donations for the Academy of Music and Education. The gown is now available for sale at the Mohna Lisa Couture main store.

Speaking of Madame Butterfly, you might enjoy listening to this! Malcolm McLaren's awesome track of the same name from 1984 - well ahead of it's time. The video is simply stunning!
