Stunning Spring 2010 Alexander McQueen Intricately Printed Strapless Bias Cut Dress

This is a gorgeous dress from Alexander McQueen. It is from his Spring 2010 collection and it is a one of the original variations of a dress that they still make to this day. Julianne Hough recently wore a black version from my archives and I have included some shots of her so you can get an idea of how amazing it is on the body. The one that she wore was from a later collection released under the creative direction of Sarah Burton but it was based on the dresses released from this original 2010 collection. I have two versions of this dress in the shop from this season at the moment, you can find the other one here. This is basically the printed version of the one that Julianne wore. It is a fantastic example of his work. I love it

The dress is made from a printed silk chiffon that is covered with one of his signature intricate designs. Prince a trailing design of leaves and flowers that float over the dress and follow the amazing draping that the dress has. It is strapless with a built-in inner cupped bodice that gives you support and holds the dress in place. The cups are shaped and these cups are one of the things that you see that is different from the later versions of this dress. These earlier piece have distinctively shaped cups The seams in the inner cups are exaggerated and this gives them this beautiful curving angle shape at the sides and peak at the front. The silk that drapes over that is all cut on the bias. The dress glides over the inner structure and falls in column to the skirt. The silk is gathered in towards the center of the front and the back so that there is more draping there and then it fall in draping curves down the sides. The choice of silk chiffon for this one gives it a lighter than air feel and as you move the silk billows and floats around you. It also creates this incredible movement when you walk. The dress is original supermodel length and looks to have been worn very little if at all. It is spectacularly beautiful.Excellent condition
