Spring Summer 2011
Collection: LibertéDraped Dresses
This is my favourite dress of this collection, a classic David Szeto design (I recently bought a similar Szeto dress in a beautiful bottle green) beautifully reinvented. The ruched gathers at the shoulder can be folded inwards towards the sleeve for a shoulder pad effect or outwards to add a cascade of ruffles a the neckline. I particularly love the bold graphic 'middle' contrasting the rest of the dress so beautifully and pulled together with a tan leather belt. The red & purple colour combination in particular...so vibrant & fresh!
So simple and beautiful...
Twisted shoulder straps and hand tucked pleats...
Different fabric makes this dress so different from the same design in the silver lame above. I am partial to this one more due to the beautiful bold graphic in the middle once again.
David Szeto describes this dress as one of the most complex dresses he's made; Draped side hip "ruched flower" sleeveless dress, the flower is draped into the pattern and ruched by hand. This is another dress he labels as having a great cut for curves - brilliant!
Draped in wool voile...
