Dolce and Gabbana ruched dresses are a ‘thing’, having a dedicated following among those seeking the most flattering of fits. Ruching – the art of gathering, folding and pleating fabric is not exclusive to this designer but is a regular feature of their collections. A ruched dress does not have to be in the bodycon style but often is. Likewise, a ruched dress can have feminine gathers and folds, shaping the dress gently. So, there are some variations.
