Our cream of mushroom window is a whole can of mmm mmm designer goodness! Front and centre is our 1970’s hand beaded pearl HALSTON dress which is absolutely exquisite and would make an amazing bridal look. The McQueen on the left is taking it back to the Victorian era, with a sexy twist. Our right Judy is mixing it up with an Alaïa dress paired with a very sweet Chanel cardigan. More details below.

These muted and dove grey looks may be quiet in colour but their styles speak volumes. The centre gown is by Mr. Blackwell (August 29, 1922 – October 19, 2008), an American designer who started his career in the late 1950’s. You may better know him as the hilarious creator of the “Ten Worst-Dressed Women” list. Wonder what he would have to say about this display?
