>>The Anita in champagne lurex and black velvet was the first version of this design I created. It sold out long ago and it’s one of my favourite designs.
It’s a perfectly balanced style: on one hand, the richness of its materials – cotton velvet and lurex. Also the elegance of the contrasting shades: a deep inky back and a very special flecked light gold . On the other, the freshness and style of it being a jumpsuit instead of a dress.
Its key features: the horseshoe-shaped lapel at bust and the self tied sash-belt, which hangs over the hip and moves with your movements.
Despite having stocked a good length of this special lurex material, it sold out long ago. Now, all that’s remaining is this sample garment. One last available piece. Will it be for you?
