We were thrilled to end the series and our year with the stunning presenter Tess Daly wearing the strapless floor-length gown on the finale of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night 20th December..x
The dress has the inspiration from a late 1950’s ballroom. The wonderful deep collar is sculpted from a bias piece of silk faille lined with silk organdie and satin to give a wonderful, generous softly rolled collar part which shapes down towards the nape of the back, and echoes the drama of the back train part. The dress itself is tailored from a woven silk blend twill which we have had developed and produced in Italy. The dress is available in bespoke colour combinations from our London boutique.
The corsage is hand made by milliner Edwina Ibbotson and is detachable and can be worn at the waist or the wrist. Or interchanged with the simple neat belt, as Tess wore.
The line of the dress is cut with a higher waist to give a flattering silhouette.
