Sequin jacket & Niedieck velvet dress

Bruce Papas designed this sequin jacket and Niedieck velvet one-shoulder dress for Meegan Pollock to wear to a friend’s 50th birthday celebration at Antoine’s. The event turned into a bit of a dress up party with everyone trying on and parading around in the jacket. The jacket was made using the border of the sequin fabric. Niedieck is the 'Rolls Royce' of cotton velvets, the only velvet that Bruce worked with.
