With grandiose detailing and a dramatic silhouette, this gown by designer Elizabeth Fillmore has an all-eyes-on-you quality.
"The duppioni brocade velvet fabric makes this strapless hourglass gown very unique," says the designer. "And the French blue satin draped twist at the waist adds regal glamour and gives it a couture statement."
This dress is part of an entire collection, which in the designers' words can be defined as "refined, romantic and regal". Qualities that come as know surprise considering the inspiration came from "very special luxe novelty fabrics" and "1950's couture".
The designer has really played with fabric this season. "Some of he fabrics have a 'french baroque' vibe that I've accented with rich draped twists at the waist for emphasis, as well as sexy silhouettes with fluid draping," said the designer.
