Last week we looked at chic trouser options for the corporate world with a twist. Our focus this week is on the pencil skirt created in the not-so-traditional way. We used brocades, colours and other textures and finishes, keeping the silhouette the same but the finish completely different.

a. front (2) and back of skirt
