The dress does up at the back with a concealed zip and fabric covered poppers. There is a seperate and very elaborate large bow in a different style floral print. The overall look is simply sublime - there was nobody doing work of this quality at ready to wear level in the early noughties and this piece looks as astonishing as it did back then. To finish the look, there is a very long, rectangular double sided scarf that incorporates the design of the dress and a further monochrome abstract print. Altogether there are three print works in this dress.
Condition wise it is excellent and has been well looked after; possibly worn once or twice with no notable flaws. On very close inspection we saw a tiny little mark that is easily hidden in the folds on the rear of the bodice of the dress. The scarf is in excellent condition too save for a few threads of colour bleed which is virtually unnoticeable due to the busy print. It is labelled a size French 40 - this equates in modern sizing to round a UK 10 -12. You can see that is is a slightly loose fit on our model who is a UK size 6 -8. Due to the nature of the design and the fact that there is an internal zip in the corset element of the dress, the sizing is somewhat flexible.
