Oh thanks Anna!! That "circus" piece is the same that was included in the exhibition. I would love it if I could find that skeleton dress she did-in full view....the detailed image in the book looks marvelous!

I love those two capes with the sun medallion embroidery! So beautiful. Actually, Cavalli (very unlikely, no?) revived that embroidery for his f/w 04 collection....probably one of the best things he's done.
