Dries Van Noten dress: beads, coral & sequins...oh my!







Early last week I 'threw my back out', and have been unable to take pictures of the detail of this dress, as requested by some lovely readers. The detailing is incredible! The coral on the neck line, tiny wooden beads on the sleeves, neckline & hem of the dress... In fact, even the sequins are unique (I'm very picky about sequins, as the wrong ones may look tacky, but I especially love the lower sequinned part of the dress).

  6. Haha, rebecca! (the clothes horse) - good question! I tried taking pictures yesterday, but my back was playing up too much, being the end of the day (and not having fully recovered...) will try again today (or if not, asap ;)). Sadly I don't look anything like the tall & slim model on the runway...

    Thank you everyone for your sweet comments! :)

  8. The details on this dress are amazing. I love the special sequins. One of the designers we represent at my showroom uses the same factory as Dries, and I one of their dresses has tiny little stars printed on the sequins!
