Sequin Carnival Dress

Sketch of the sequin cocktail dress. The dress was inspired by old black and white hollywood and 1920s full pannier dresses.

The Dress is hand draped over a boned bandeau bodice and supported with nets and a crinoline hem. 
This dress is a one of a kind piece available in the ready to wear section.

The dress was photographed at the carnival fairground the November. Styled with a long trench coat, a heavy matte coat against the sequins worked wells. I the studio the dress was styled with a long sleeved bodysuit underneath. 
I love strapless gowns as the fit and silhouette always work so well. Many people don't like exposing their arms but a simple tight jersey top works really elegantly underneath a strapless or sleeveless gown.
The shiny sequins with a chunky knit sweater will look gorgeous for winter too.
