With its soft palette of nudes, pinks and dusty roses, this tutu takes its inspiration from the AMANDALEWKEE client – confident, edgy and delicate. The tutu is constructed from two distinct pieces and features exotic materials like the snapper skin bodice and salmon skin waist accent. These elements, together with the heavy exposed zippers and comfortable stretch fabrics, reflect the design aesthetic of the AMANDALEWKEE brand.

A native of Toronto, Amanda Lew Kee started designing in 2008 before she graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelor of Design. She launched her women’s ready-to-wear line, AMANDALEWKEE, at Toronto Fashion Week in 2010.
