when i create a garment i do think about its hold. i like a bit of structure (i think a lot of couturies are totally all about structure) but my real fascination is with hold. furthermore i think this is where the real innovation in fashion comes from
with my knits i make them tight enough to stay in place. i think this adds to the comfort and makes sure that your garment is seen as a fashion item.
with other items especially skirts i utilize the natural curve of the waist and the garment waist to induce a good hold on the body. i also use this formula with some of the strapless dresses or include a tie to hold on the body.
