Fall 2011 Mary Katranzou Strapless Print Dress

"I wanted to push print to the limit" said Mary Katranzou to Style.com of this collection. On the runway this print combination was shown on a similar bodice with a china (as in chinaware) inspired corseted hip peplum and the skirt was shown long and flowing. For retail production the pattern was used on the silhouette that seemed to be the hit of the show and one that would become a mainstay as we see Mary grow and develop collection after successful collection. It is strapless and fitted through the bodice and then the hip is cut to shape and flare in a rounded curve. The two contrasting prints are stunning and work perfectly together. She is absolutely one of the new guard and pieces like this from her early collections will only become more collectible and valuable as time passes and her star continues to rise. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with  back zipper. Lightly boned through the bodice. The exterior fabric is a silk and cotton mix that has a slight texture. Tagged a 12 but please check actual measurements as her pieces can run small.
