A beautifully detailed silk-mix velvet dress with embroidered tulle overlayer and intricate embroidered and appliqued detailing. With it's relaxed loose fit design it is reminiscent of the designs of the Arts and Crafts period of the early 20th C.
It has a vest style bodice neckline with a shallow scoop neck.
The dress shell is constructed of a lovely soft supple silk-mix velvet in a pale honey shade. There is an overlayer of very fine nude tulle embroidered with stylised coral and pale pink flower motifs. There is a lovely appliqued fringe of dull gold dangling guipure 'feathers' around the hem of the top-layer, and also in the side and back waist area. There are additional heavily embroidered flowers and leaves at the neckline and centre front of the dress.
This dress also works very well as a shorter calf/ankle length look, and could easily be shortened by removing the bottom tier of the under-layer.
The dress is lined in pale caramel 100% silk crepe-de-chine.

{The dress is shown in the first image with the Nephele silk chiffon kimono, which is not included in this sale, but can be ordered separately elsewhere in the shop.}

This is a completely unique design, the only one of its kind, and a real future heirloom piece. It has only been used for a photoshoot, and is in excellent condition.
This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)

Owing to the unique nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the adjustable mannequin, set to the highest figures the dress will comfortably accommodate.
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before buying.
