Lihannan Sidhe

As you can tell, I love designing backless dresses. This romantic, purple chiffon dress is perfect for special occasions. I named it Lihannan Sidhe, which is the name for a Scottish fairy. What do you think of this design? I would love both negative and positive feedback.

Leanan Sidhe is the famous Celtic muse with such a dark and incomparable beauty that her lover was often distraught with longing and suffering for her absence. Because Gaelic poets died at a very young age, this spirit is considered an evil fairy. As W.B. Yeats states in his book Fairy and Folk Tales of Ireland she grew restless and carried them away to other worlds, for death does not destroy her power."
