Gorgeous Fall 2017 Alessandra Rich Turquoise Velvet Dress w Ruffle & Collar
Alessandra Rich is based in London and founded her self-named brand in 2010 after she designed her own wedding dress. She had no formal training and yet has managed to take her brand from the first 10 piece collection that took her eight months to put together to the mega brand that we know it to be today. This dress is the twin of Look 7 from her Fall 2017 collection. It felt like it was everywhere at the time yet at the same time it was impossible to get your hands on one because it was sold out everywhere.
It is such a gorgeous dress. It is made from a turquoise stretch velvet that has a pretty floral print covering its surface. It buttons down the front and then she cleverly uses a combination of white and black to make it feel both feminine and edgy at the same time. The collar is wide and curved to follow the neckline. It is done in a double layer of a crisp white fabric which gives it a very sculpted formal feel while the curve of it keeps it feminine. The bodice is cut to skim over you to the waist that comes in just a touch to suggest shape. It curves over the hip and then down to the hem. Depending on your height it will fall to about the ankles so that your shoe can be seen. The sleeves are puffed and I love the black ribbon that details the cuffs. The ribbon is set so that it creates a pretty ruffle that I love. That same black ribbon outlines both of the top set pockets on each hip. Black fabric covered buttons trail up the front to close the dress for the perfect final flourish. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition
Fully lined in a soft white fabric and closes down the front with the buttons as seen. The fabric has some stretch. Tagged a modern Alessandra Rich 40
