New Black and White dress creation...

Full dress

If you are a longtime reader of this blog you will know that I love me some bold prints!  I also love Marimekko fabric and its cheaper cousin Ikea fabrics.  I needed a 'statement' dress for a function at the MCC so I whipped up this baby.  Well actually some parts were already made, such as the pin tucked front panel that had been sitting there for a little while but I got inspired and made some alterations.

New dress

I added a bell/wide type sleeve which is quite dramatic.  Also I think the best accessories for this are black patent leather, so I added a black patent leather cinch belt, wedge shoes and patent leather clutch!  I love the graphic nature of the pattern and really, you can't go wrong with black and white!
You can check out the dress on Burdastyle if you're on there too!

And she looked stunning at the exhibition launch. A classic black and white fashion plate in a sea of red, white and blue stripes... and pastel pink shirt and tie on Richie!
