Designer's Notes & Features >

My favorite design detail of this dress is the V-shape of the back. It’s at once elegant and a little cheeky - an element of surprise in an otherwise classic silhouette.

  • Features: Boat neck, slight v-shape in back, fully lined, vent at center back for ease of movement.
