I read somewhere that designer Joseph Altuzarra described this (demi-couture) frock as one which “no one will buy” because it was priced at £7000, which is considerably more than your average ready-to-wear frock, yes? Yet more and more designers are creating demi-couture to distance themselves from the regular high street labels. I had wrestled with posting this image from Flare magazine because the stylist has paired it with a fur coat. I have loved this dress for so long, I adore the gypsy/boho vibe and the coin details, I bet it makes a gorgeous “cha-ching” sound from all the coins when you move around in it. So, in the end I decided that fur is fake. If it were real fur the magazine would have stated it in they buy-line. If it turns out I am wrong, someone will tell me I’m sure!
Have a wonderful weekend lovelies!
