I love fashion, and I love almost nothing more than anything by Azzedine Alaia. The slight Tunisian has been studiously perfecting his signature 'body-con' for over 30 years from his atelier in Le Marais. This dress with its figure hugging rib bands, small tucks at the hip to create extra volume and the bust enhancing neckline are essential Alaia. Like every piece from this famed label it did not hang around for long! Now SOLD
Olivier Theyskens is absolutely without question my all-time most admired designer. From his own eponymous label, to the grandeur of his work at Rochas and the coming together of couture and easy daywear at Nina Ricci for me he can do no wrong. Take this exquisite dress from Nina Ricci Autumn/Winter 2008; the fabric just melts to the touch, the reveal of the collarbone exudes sexiness without vulgarity and the tulle godets are silk! I knew this dress would take some time to find its right owner, but it was love at first sight, and a slightly sad goodbye for me, now SOLD
