Aerithe by Sharlenne Chen took my breath away at the APAIT showcase. Sharlenne Chen specializes in evening gowns, cocktail and wedding dresses that are hand-crafted to showcase the uniqueness of women. In her own words, this means "to create one-of-a-kind clothing, custom fit and tailored to the needs of the customer."

Chen holds herself to that high-quality standard by delivering a collection that is quite dramatic without the pretension. The dresses are made in a manner that doesn't detract away from individuality but rather enhance it. It takes real technical skill and passion to execute that. If I could, I'd wear that billowy, bat-wing top in a heart beat. Find out how more about Aerithe by Sharlenne Chen and how you can get your very own gown for any special occasion on her website here.
