I know we all love texture.
About five years ago I was at a show for a designer at Market and I remember seeing a gown with out of this world texture (or what I thought was “out of this world” at the time).
That was all I could think. I had fallen hard for this whole texture thing.
Fast forward five years.
Texture is everywhere. Every designer has at least one textured piece in each collection and they know that it will sell well. It’s kinda easy to design a textured gown now. Just bunch up some fabric, put it on a skirt, sew the skirt onto a ruched bodice and call it good.
I’ve grown to appreciate real, thought out, beautifully executed texture.
So I turn to Oscar de la Renta.
This gown is really almost a crocheted lace. It is soft, buy also offers a punch in the face when it comes down the aisle. A good punch. Not a Katy Perry punching Prince Charming in her new “Wide Awake” video kind of punch.
Maybe more like a refreshing slap in the face when you’re tired.
The gown is a trumpet cut, which means it’s a fit and flare where the flare starts at the hip and not the knee. This fit is much more forgiving than a mermaid cut and can look good on most figures.
