Isabel Toledo

This looks like satin with wood grain printed on but I’m not the best when it comes to deciphering fabrics from pictures. I love the turned out seams and the raw finishing here, and the construction looks beyond impeccable. Scanned from Isabel Toledo: Fashion from the Inside Out by Valerie Steele and Patricia Mears.
Its a definite must have book.

Isabel Toledo, the designer herself. I think her husband Ruben Toledo painted those eyes on her. Amazing.
