Amare Elementorum

When: Fri., April 29, 6-9 p.m. 2016

The boutique Bespoke (2650 Cherokee Street; 314-665-2665 or is manufacturing fashion that is seldom sewn in St. Louis. Owner Dorothy Jones works rigorously in her shop, engineering made-to-measure, customized couture for her customers. In a new collaboration, Jones has teamed up with Victoria Cates, creating a twelve-piece line for their shared fashion show, Amare Elementorum. For these designs, Jones pairs her hand-made patterns with Cates' intricate beadwork embroidery in the theme of a cabinet of curiosities. You can see their handiwork at the free premiere party from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 29. The clothing will remain on display for one month after that.
