Ivey Abitz on the Red Carpet Emmys 2018

Emmy Winner Carolyn Hennesy wears Ivey Abitz as she hosts the Red Carpet at the 45th Daytime Emmy Awards, 2018. Carolyn’s gown was made just for her.

Carolyn’s Gown

— One hundred percent washed silk, cross-woven with rust and green threads. The weave changes hues in various lighting to look like liquid or a flowing metal. It is a silk weaving technique that was used during the Regency period for royal court gowns, though this silk is new and was woven this year.

— Handmade pin-tucking adorns the waist and handmade pleating adorns the bottom hem of the gown.

— Antique dog brooch, circa early 1900’s, is nestled inside of a hand sculpted brooch that adorns the tie in back.

— Over sixty hand sculpted floral embellishments adorn the bottom hem. Each was sculpted, then hand sewn onto the gown, taking three weeks to finish.
