Highgarden Fashion - my take by Gewandfantasien Highgarden Fashion - my take by Gewandfantasien
As great as the fashion in the HBO-series is, I tried to ignore all this and have my own take on the highgarden (Tyrell) fashion.
My version is made of four pieces.
- cloak with back lacing, shoulder pieces and standing color with slitted long sleeves in dark blue jacquard with a rose pattern
- waist chincher of rose embroidered silk in gold with decoration in yellow and gold
- off-shoulder dress in light gold rayon with a flower pattern and lace applique at the neckline, accented with gold sequins and seed beads
- plaited belt in yellow and gold, 4 strands

The whole dress fits a size XS (german 34/36).

I will list this dress for sale on etsy in the next days as well. Just have to figure out a price.

This is not stock. If you want the image as reference for anything, please ask me.

I'm curious, what inspired you to make the choices you did? What about the cloak and dress seem 'highgarden' to you?

First one is the obvious and in the fabric itself. The blue one and the golden one have a pattern of roses. The dress has one of tiny stylised flowers.

The shape is a bit more difficult: I imagine Highgarden to be a place of a rather warm climate, yet not desertlike. Thus the different layers with the option to shed one layer on midday or adding a formal one which still gives a bit of air. The cloak sleeves allow for air since they are splitted.

From the books Highgarden is more refined than other parts of Westeros in regard to chivalry, poetry and all the other things you would put into a court with troubadours. I wanted the dress to underline the female forms and shape them a bit. That's why I overdraw the shoulder and emphasized the waist with a cincher and a belt, creating a very small waist. Highgarden has some strong female characters, they rely on their wit as much as on their looks. That one went into the decision to the shoulder shape and the seemingly small waist, too. A combination of being strong and delicate at the same time.

I think they overdid in the series, leaving Margaery half naked most of the time. That put too much stress on the looks, hiding all the other aspects.

Thats very pretty :) The dress reminds me a tiny bit of one of Padame's gowns, probably just the pale gold :D
