The vibrant flower embroidered 'Frida' dress, named for the iconic Mexican artist by whom it was inspired.
Soft black lace is embroidered with a bold pattern of open blooms in vivid shades of crimson and hot pink, with leaf green foliage. The bodice is lined with a double layer of crimson 100% silk organza.
A fitted to the high hip bodice has a deep plunge 'illusion' neckline which is infilled with a fine tulle, which 'disappears' against pale to caramel skin tones. Full length fitted sleeves. Closes at centre back with silk covered buttons and rouleau loops.
The skirt is flower embroidered black lace layered over crimson silk organza and several layers of black tulle, which add volume to the silhouette. Floor length at front, it extends into a train at the back. Lined in red silk habutai.
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and used for a photo shoot or two, but it is in good clean condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from one or two very minor smudges on the lining, and an insignificant barely visible repair to one of the lining seams. 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, UK 6-10)
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 garment is shown, with any latitude indicated.
If you are locally based you are welcome to make an appointment to come to the Brighton showroom to try the gown on before purchasing.
Bust; 33"....would fit up to 34"
Waist; 25"....would fit up to 26"
Waist to hem (front); 44" (could easily be shortened by a competent seamstress)
