As the temperature rises & the need for party dresses mounts – I scoured the couture options on Shrimpton Couture to find the perfect, stand-out piece. When deciding on a dress I like to choose something that is reflective of my style, but slightly elevated. This 1959 Haute Couture Maggy Rouf draped gown (click to shop!) proved to be just that. There is something so powerful about wearing red. Research in colour psychology has been shown that opting for a deep colour, like red signifies a pioneering spirit & leadership qualities. Wearing red has a profound influence on our mood, which is why we may feel so confident while wearing the hue.
The intricate construction & the delicate sweeps of silk added such a beautiful, feminine touch to the gown. It curves around your body in the most elegant and flattering way- hugging your figure and accentuating your features. Definitely a party-must have!
