Neo-Rococo: 'Rococo fancy square justaucorps with frilly jabot' at Viona Art

It is unfortunate how little justice these pictures do to the obviously beautiful garment. It is d delightfully in-between, with the 18th century cut of a justacorps and a modern day (or, alternatively, Dark Ages) use of tartan; I especially approve of the neck ruffle being of the same fabric. Full marks for styling, too.

View this outfit here (under 'Costumes'). The entire site is made of pure gold, in fact; the Portfolio section in particular.

  3. Unfortunately I have no idea where to buy this stuff; I believe these are custom-made pieces for stage.

    Shrine has some things that resemble this piece. http://shrinestore.com/ Other candidates are Lip Service http://www.lip-service.com/, Clockwork Couture http://www.clockworkcouture.com/ and Violent Delights http://www.violentdelights.co.uk/, maybe also Spin Doctor (various online resellers).
