2008 Prada Couture Silk Dress

I love this amazing and brilliant silk floral Prada runway dress from the 2008 Resort collection. I remember drooling over it as it hung in all its $15,000 dollar glory at the Prada boutique. I never dreamed I would have it in my hands one day! This was one of the most infamous of all Miuccia's designs and sold out world-wide shortly after being released in extremely limited quantities. It was featured heavily in the ad campaign for that season and was worn by Lilli Allen and other celebrities. It graced the cover of Vogue and appeared in many other publications and editorials. It will forever be instantly recognized as one of the keystone pieces from Miuccia Prada's brilliant mind! It is also an amazing testament to the couture level construction techniques that the house of Prada employs. The bust is fitted and has a built in boned corseting under neath so you are held perfectly in place. The skirt is a masterpieces - it is deliberately and meticulously shaped and raped with great swoops of fabric draped over each hip and caught up at the zipper. A ruffle runs across the lower hen and underneath is ruffled edged silk skirting. I love the back where a row of tiny buttons and large ones give the impression that the dress has been left slightly undone. It gives it all a wanton and beguiling sexiness. In excellent, seemingly unworn condition.
