The Art of Draping

Holy smokes, if you can get the right fit, this tunic is a knock-out.
The fit is key; I'd suggest ordering down one size from your usual, or perhaps trying a couple of sizes to find your best fit. (It's worth it.) I usually wear a Small, taking a 4 or a 6 in most brands here at GH. But as I'm only 5'4" and short-waisted, the Small in this was ludicrous on me, with the armholes gaping open and the overall effect more potato-sack than pretty. But - I was so enchanted by the lovely, soft hand of the fabric (divine) and the potential of the design (unusual) I sent the Small back to try an XS. (Thanks to the other reviewers of this, too - I otherwise might have given up.)
Eureka! Fit in XS is perfect. Drape is extraordinary: skims the figure without clinging, indeed, like a dream, just as in the description. The neckline is intended to drape symmetrically, but constructed asymmetrically, and showcases the shoulders beautifully. Definitely requires the right undergarment; my racer-back brassiere just barely squeaks by. Just wait 'til you see the draping on this is; it's pretty astonishing. Fabric is some of the nicest I've seen in a while, and yes, I bet it will travel well. I'll be keeping a look-out for more by this designer.
I got it in black. The velvet accent is lovely. Pairs with any slim skirts or pants, dresses up or down. Yowza.
If you're looking for tops to showcase the shoulders, this little beauty is a gem.

Stunning, modern, sexxxxy!
Date:December 16, 2013
This top is gorgeous and a show stopper! I ordered M, my normal size at 5-8" 130 lbs, but had to exchange for a S because the arm holes were too wide. Fits like a dream, pretty slim through body and only a strapless bra works under. I wore it with similar to model in catalog faux leather leggings and knee high black wedge boots and every single person at the party wanted to talk about it. Really shows off shoulders and is very sexy! Nice, heavy drape fabric, velvet asymmetrical trim pretty detail, length in front high thigh, in rear almost to knee...swoops down. Love the deep maroon color too.

Beautiful and flattering

I purchased this Tunic in the wine color to wear for holiday parties. The matte jersey feels substanstial and the velvet trim is interesting and modern. The cut of this tunic highlights the shoulders. I originally ordered a Small and the arm holes were too loose, exchanged it for an XS and it fits perfectly. Im 5'5' and 128lbs, normally wear an XS in GH tops so this one fits true to size. Highly recommend. Beautiful.
