Gorgeous Fall 2010 Loris Azzaro by Vanessa Seward Runway Ostrich Feather & Huge Crystal Dress
In 2010 the Loris Azzaro label was being designed by Vanessa Stewart and she sent a mix of daywear and evening wear down the runway. This was Look 29 of the show and it and the proceeding feather coat for look 28 where the two best looks in the show in my opinion. This is a fantastically fun dress to wear and extremely glamorous.
The dress is made from a fine black wool crepe that has huge glass crystals and ostrich feathers applied to it and covering every square inch. It is cut to just above the knee depending on your height and it has a simple silhouette that is easy to wear. The upper bodice is completely encrusted with huge glass rhinestones. This adds weight to the dress because they are glass and so heavily applied. They are so tightly spaced that you cannot see the black fabric underneath. I love that both the front and the back are completely finished in the crystals. The way that these catch the light is remarkable. The skirt falls from there and widens out s it nears the hem for a bit of a baby doll feel. The whole lower portion of the dress is finished with horizontal rows of black ostrich feathers. These are stacked in rows that slightly overlap each other. The movement these create is incredible. The slightest bit of air causes the feathers to move around you. It is a fantastically fun dress and an easy way to add some glitz to your wardrobe. Excellent condition with a small note below.
The dress is lined in a black silk and closes with a hidden set side zipper. The crystals are hand applied. There is the occasional crystal and dangling bead missing. But nothing that leaves a outstandingly bare area. Please see the photo after the label shot for the one area that has a couple missing. This is near the edge under the arm and you don't see it when the dress is on. Tagged FR42, UK14, US12, JPN42
