This is such a pretty and romantic piece by Rosie Assoulin. It is from the Resort 2018 collection and was look 32 in the presentation. The original price on this was was just under 3k. This one has never been worn and still has its original sales tags. It would make a love garden party dress or even a wedding dress for a bride who does not want to go the traditional route.
The dress has an asymmetrical feel and is cut to spiral down and around the body. It shows Rosie's quirky sense of design that still manages to be refined and elegant. There is a reason why the top stylists in the world source from Rosie's work on a regular basis for their clients red carpet appearances. The bright flowers that cover the entire dress were inspired by bodega flowers—specifically, the paper wrappers that come with the blooms. Hence the 'Say it with flowers' slogan found at so many New York bodegas and now printed onto the dress. I love that it is printed in several ways. It runs over the straps that curve around the shoulders and throughout the base satin finish fabric. More flowers and that same slogan are printed across the silk chiffon panels that flutter over one shoulder and then down and around the body to the hem. The flowers that you see are a combination of direct printing onto the fabric and velvet flocked parts to give a touch of texture and an extra tactile sense. It is an easy to wear dress and makes the prettiest statement. I love it. Excellent condition
Fully self-lined in white through the entire dress. It closes with a hidden set zipper. Light boning on the sides of the bodice. Pockets hidden along the side seams. The shoulder straps seemed to be cut a little long on my dress form but they could easily be adjusted if you found that on you as well. Original price/hang tag attached and it has not been worn.
