This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot or two, but it is in immaculate freshly cleaned condition, with no marks as far as I can see. 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 custom made 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 standard UK size 8 mannequin on which the dress is shown (last two pics).
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 completing checkout. Please be aware that there may be import tax payable at point of entry according to local tax laws.
