This skirt was part of the Pale Court Memorial done in memory of fellow
designer and friend, Laura Purdy. This piece was one of the treasured
items from Laura's fashion label, "The Pale Court" that was left
unfinished at the time of Laura's death... Some items were in the very
beginning stages of being cut out, while others were partially sewn.
Each design was faithfully completed, adding pieces when something was
missing, and figuring out the puzzles along the way. Occasionally,
there will be small anomalies in the design such as a crush in the
velvet due to how they had been stored, or evidence of a different kind
of stitch that Laura made. These are all part of the special nature and
history of these items.

These items are the last of their kind, and one of Laura's signature woven labels has been sewn into each piece of clothing.
This skirt was featured as part of an editorial in Gothic Beauty magazine, and is made from a rich crimson red matte duchess satin fabric with an intricate allover design of black velvet flocked ivy, trimmed with pointy black bridal lace along the lower hem. The fitted waist closes with a zipper and button. The waist measures approx. 31", and the length is approx. 39".
