No one does edgy and romantic like Sarah Burton at the helm of Alexander McQueen. This dress is a good example of the brand’s ethos. It’s a miss it and regret it forever kind of dress.
Size It 44 / UK 12/ US 8 but please note the measurements below. Broad, adjustable shoulder straps on both sides of the bodice.
My price just £3,900
Fabrics. Outer fabric 1 100% polyester. Fabric 2 100% polyamide. Lining 100% silk.
A very wearable design, made of swathes of clashing floral and checked pleated organza it has a form fitting bodice and a full skirt. Natural waist is ‘nipped in’ by an internal belt with its own fastening. Fully lined.
Runway version was slightly different – I don’t think it was shown lined. Stylists used black accessories including a black belt, but personally I would wear it without a belt. The choice is yours. Completely hidden rear zip thanks to overlapping material fastened with stud poppers.

The dress isn’t cheap. Low volume, luxury fashion isn’t.
