Stunning Fall 2020 Richard Quinn Runway Tropical Floral Print Dress w Jeweled Cuffs & Collar
Richard Quinn launched his label in 2016 after graduating from Central Saint Martins. In 2018, Queen Elizabeth II made an appearance at his spring runway show and presented him with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design which instantly thrust him into the spotlight. He is known for his bold use of colour and design and does his own print design work. To foster more emphasis on the importance of textile and design in fashion he has an open-door policy to his studio where they offer digital and screen-print services to young designers and run print and textile workshops. This dress is from the Fall 2020 collection and is the twin of Look 45. It is a wonderful example of his work.
This dress brings to mind that classic hostess dress silhouette of the sixties. It has that loose and easy to wear silhouette that falls from the shoulders and expands outwards as it nears the hem. He has exaggerated the fullness through the body and especially towards the hem so that it becomes this sweeping statement piece that has a touch a caftan feel to it. The sleeves are long and each sleeve ends with a circle of huge coloured crystals and rhinestone bands. This same jeweled treatment is done all the way around the neckline and I love this added bit of glitz. You can see on the runway shot and video how beautifully the dress falls and moves once on the body. The fabric is exceptional as one would expect from a textile designer. It has an explosion of huge tropical flower completely covering the dress. The top layer is a silk that has just enough weight to it to hold the shape of the dress beautifully when you move. It is lined in a black silk organza and the lining is set to give it a bit of air and volume between the inner and outer layer which helps hold the shape. It becomes a work of art to see that print across the silk. It is absolutely stunning and still in its original uncut supermodel length. It appears to have been worn very little if at all and still has its original envelope of extra crystals. Excellent condition
