This fabulous dress from my Paris collection has been sitting in the Belle Dress Hire room for more than 6 months. I was beginning to lose hope that it would ever be given a chance. This gorgeous, full length, ruby red, silk jersey dress with mesh and beaded detail at the front and the back, really is a stunning dress. Ladies have tried it on before but for whatever reason decided to go with another gown instead of this one so I was delighted whenever Linsey Keery came to me for an appointment to find a style for the Regent House Grammar School formal and fell in love with the dress.
The dress is a tiny size 6/8 so you need to be very slight and also not top heavy to wear this style to the full and so it matched Linsey’s figure to perfection!
In the past, young girls who have come to me for a formal dress appointment have been afraid to even try this dress on as they thought it was too mature …. however, Linsey has shown that by keeping accessories to an absolute minimum and wearing a young hairstyle and make up, you can definitely ROCK this type of style at a school formal.
I have to also add that sometimes my dresses come back after school formals in a less than ideal condition but when Linsey returned the dress at the weekend, I pulled down the zipper on the dress bag to reveal a practically immaculate dress. No chewing gum or cigarette burns along the hem, no plucks on the fabric, no overwhelming smell of alcohol …. I was so impressed and emailed her to say that she was a credit to her parents and welcome back at Belle Dress Hire any time!!
