I have always been a fan on unconventional shapes in fashion. I think what makes this gown so successful is the combination of the colour, the cascade of fabric down one hip and the surface decoration which draws your eye to the curve of her waist.
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much as usual! As you can see I have been very busy trying to prepare my Buckingham Palace ‘In Fine Style’ costumes for a photo shoot tomorrow afternoon. This is the second of three journeys to get all the costumes to Uni! Only one more to go! Hurrah!

Same story as before, I’m sorry I’m not sure who created this set of photos.
