I love designer dresses!

Hello all, I love all designer things of course, but for me a well designed dress is just the ultimate. Short, long, strapless, strapped, sleeved or sans I adore dresses, and clearly in a completely platonic way!
Here are some of my favourites from the salon for you to enjoy.

This is a gorgeous Roland Mouret, who as you know is one of my most respected designers. This is dress that needs to be seen on a body, it just comes alive. The airy ruffle that flirtily covers the back, the slightly structured halter that allows the front to drape and the way the zip is sewn in at an angle in the back that creates the cascade there too is just genius. And of course then theres the print!
Now because we've been getting some size requests on pieces here is the first time we will provide this information too.

Now SOLD to a fabulous fellow fashion lover!

Now unfortunately my shooting skills don't capture this amazing dress to its full potential. Its a Dries Van Noten, and made out of a heavy viscose twill which pulls down the skirt for a really long line. Then, and what you can't see, are the matching godets all through the hem which give it the most lovely movement while walking. Casual without belt, or as seen here with the John Richmond ponyskin wrap-around belt its definitely a dress forever.

Now here's something for the woman who wants to be noticed, at a fabulous red carpet event nonetheless!
Luca Luca has been the staple lable for New York society ladies, and their daughters too, for years, and this dress definitely fits the bill. Its made of tiers and tiers of swirled silk organza with a base cut on the bias. The around the body effect is continued with the one shoulder look that is just so right now, and its even more stunning in person of course! Now for the right shoes...

Final one for today is the everlasting Valentino. This dress is from the Valentino collection line, and it shows; melt in the hand silk, a three colour print and hand stitched drape everywhere, its gorgeous. I really think the hand draping gives the dress a personality and of course this would translate to the wearer too, and its just so fun to dance in, the perfect party dress!

Hope you enjoyed, remember to contact through the blog, email enquire@paris99.net or directly by phone on +61424583409 to make an appointment to visit the lovely salon, and I've sat on the balcony everyday so far and spring has only just started!
