F/W 2005 Look #43 Runway Floral Silk Prada Dress
This is the second time I have had this fantastic little dress in the shop but one size larger this time. It is easily one of the most recognizable of the dresses that walked the 2005 runway from Prada. It is constructed from a gorgeous custom screened stretch silk crepe that is one level up from chiffon as far its weight but has an opaqueness that a chiffon would not have. The bodice has a high neck and the sleeves and top skim the body. I love how the skirt cascades from the waist and has a little vents of contrasting fabric set along the hem of the skirt - as you walk or move these open and you get that glimpse of the lighter fabric. The fabric is hand painted and was screened to follow the lines and cut of the dress prior to construction. It is all cut on the bias so immediately settles into place and highlights a girl's curves perfectly. So sexy and I love the nod to the forties in its cut. A dress fit for a modern day pin-up girl. Excellent condition.
The dress is unlined and closes with a hidden set back zipper. The quality of finishes that one would expect from Prada. Tagged a Prada 43. The fabric does have some stretch
