My friend, Theresa Kopecky of Tess Designs, is featured in the latest issue of Austin Monthly! I'm so proud of her. And the dresses look fantastic in print.
"From Mad Men to My Week with Marilyn, the allure of the ‘50s and ‘60s continues to influence culture and fashion. Austin designer Theresa Kopecky uses retro icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Doris Day and Audrey Hepburn as her sartorial muses for Tess Designs. While her vintage-inspired dresses all have fitted waistlines to accentuate curves, Kopecky, an Air Force combat veteran, designs her clothing to accentuate strength as well as femininity. “The dresses may have a classic silhouette, but they are engineered for the modern woman,” she says. Tess Designs can be found at Creatures Boutique, Dress Shop and Etcetera, etc., or online at www.tessdress.com."
