The inspiration for this showcase dress comes from the classic 1950s movie stars, such as Audrey Hepburn. The design evolved from a number of hand drawn sketches, and maquette’s, before the gown was hand crafted in my studio at The Storey in Lancaster.

Neat seam lines are cut  into a contemporary and elegant silhouette – a sleek classic design. I introduced an exquisite  twist to the design by adding a lower ‘v’ back and an oversized bow detail. The gown is a mix of silk dutchess satin and silk crepe cut on the empire line and falling into a soft a-line with a small train. This dress can be recreated in many different fabrics and colours and other design details can be added if prefered.
