A stunning 1940s style cocktail evening dress inspired by the iconic mid century american fashion designer Dorothy O'hara - mistress of draping and 'glorifying figures'.

Dorothy O'hara was known for being a designer at Paramount Studios throughout the 1940s but also had her own fashion label which thrived through the late 40s and 50s. Her designs were incrediably flattering with a focus on strong shoulders and a slim hip - using clever draping techniques to enhance and accentuate the female figure.

This dress is inspired by some of her 1940s designs via handling originals and photographs.

The beauty of this dress is how it flatters the figure whilst still being demure. We've used ruching at the hip and on bustline to create shape and interest whilst the ruching at the shoulders gives a strong 1940s silhouette.

Many of you will love the longer sleeves which have shaping darts on the inside elbow and the back zip for ease in getting the dress on. Full faux wrap on skirt.

This dress is potentially more versatile than it seems, wear with black accessories for practical purposes or glam up with some bling and a fancy up do.

Key Features Include:-
- flattering square neckline with ruching
- wrap skirt with flattering hip gathers
- back zip
- 3 quarter darted sleeves 

*This colourway has no belt

Proudly made in the UK 

Fabric: Viscose/poly/spandex mix - there is some comfort stretch
Washing instructions: cool hand wash or dry clean 
Length from natural waist: approx 27 inches

This dress is free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt and skims the waist. The bust area is fairly generous but is more fitted than it looks. It is also very fitted under the bust and feedback tells us that this area can be a little tight. For this reason, we strongly suggest that you select your size through the bust measurements and if unsure - opt for a size up.

Style suits pear shapes, hourglass and pillar most.

Fabric has no stretch in it - so if you are between sizes - it would be advisable to select the size above.
