  • Insider Notes

The Crossroads Mermaid skirt is reminicent of the "Freedom Quilts" created by enslaved Africans in America on their path to freedom. It's figure-hugging from the waist to the knee, then falls into a dramatic fishtail silhouette. Hand-batiked in a black-and-white harlequin design; you can pair this piece with the Ruffle Cuff Shirt for a runway-ready look.
