Creativity and fantasy led to some fabulous Evening Dresses Designs

Le 14 octobre 2016, 11:34 dans Mode 0

Our love affair with the evening dress began in the early 19th century, when its popularity grew as it became fashionable at formal affairs. Always made out of luxurious fabrics, the design of the dress has changed over the years as fashion styles have progressed. Throughout the Victorian era, floor- and ankle-length dresses remained most admired, with most changes being made to the sleeves and neck lines. In the 1830s, off-the-shoulder dresses dominated; in the 1840s, low-necked designs; and in the 1850s short-sleeved gowns. In the 1860s, dresses were accessorised with long gloves and the 1890s with a long train. The Edwardian era saw the empire silhouette and in the 1920s the flapper style revolutionised the evening dress. However, it wasn’t until the 1930s that the dress was exceptionally modernised and was swept up onto glamorous and innovative fashion scene.

Creativity and fantasy led to some fabulous designs. The above example is from the Dior Spring/Summer 96/97 collection. Revealed on 20 January 1997, it presented John Galliano’s first collection for Dior — a show stopper, illustrating the excellence that was to come. This strapless, full-skirted, gloriously romanticised dress consists of a silver satin corset, embellished with embroidery and jewels, and a fluffy capacious princess-like tulle and organza skirt. This dress transports you into a fairytale. Capturing the attention and memorising.

The image on the left is from Nina Ricci’s Spring/Summer 1994 collection. Fabulously feminine and floral patterned. It is embellished with beads, bows and fresh flowers. The style is very different from the Dior dress, with short sleeves and wrap over skirt. The detail on the dress is beautifully delicate, yet elaborate and stunning.

The blue evening gown is from the Chanel Couture Autumn/Winter 1996 collection. It depicts extreme elegance with an understated style, which lets the incandescent fabric catch the eye. Sequinned with straps, figure hugging and light reflective, it demonstrates another designer’s take on the traditional evening gown. These pieces illustrate just how much the evening dress has changed. How fashion has experimented, developed, and adapted in order to fabricate exquisite designs.

Top Bridesmaid Dress Styles that can Wear Again and Again

Le 28 septembre 2016, 09:05 dans Mode 0

If you recently shelled out big bucks for a bridesmaid dress to wear in a friend’s wedding, you may think that it will just sit in the back of your closet once the wedding is over. Luckily, however, many modern weddings use versatile bridesmaid dresses that are so chic, you can actually wear them again and again. If you’re considering re-wearing that floor-length frock to an upcoming formal event, check out these simple tips for how to repurpose your bridesmaid dress for any other occasion.

1. Consider the dress. If the wedding was very formal, you can likely re-wear the dress to other formal occasions, such as military balls or the opera. If it was a casual, summer wedding, your bridesmaid dress would make the perfect outfit for something else that is only slightly formal, such as a party or even another wedding. Use your discretion before attempting to re-wear the dress.

2. Invest in new shoes. Because many brides prefer that the bridesmaids wear shoes that match the dress to a T, you likely won’t want to wear those shoes again. Instead, purchase a pair of heels in a complimentary shade, such as a neutral silver, gold or black.

3. Wear something on top. If you want to transition a warm weather bridesmaid dress into colder weather, you can easily throw a shawl or jacket on top. A wide, silky wrap is perfect for those transitional months between summer and fall, while a heavier pashmina or leather jacket will give it a high fashion look come wintertime.

4. Tone down the accessories. For less formal occasions, you can dress down your bridesmaid dress by pairing it with less formal accessories as well. Think a simple gold necklace, a pair of small pearl earrings or a stack of bangles on one arm.
