Byzantine

Byzantine, a Smooth ballroom costume by Doré that is perfect in every way! To begin, the dress has nude elastic spaghetti straps. On the front, a tiered necklace attached to the straps. Both the front and the back of the dress have a v-neckline. The back neckline is deep, with elastic straps connecting it. The bust has a luxurious white crepe fabric gently gathered. On the back, the crepe hugs the neckline and forms a cowl. The bodice transitions into a nude mesh. It is form fitting and creates a contoured silhouette. Lustrous white scarves attach to the nude fabric on the front, and drape down into the skirt. Furthermore, the skirt has an inverted basque seam on the hips. The skirt is made from two white fabrics: a spandex and a lustrous satin. The satin creates the godets in the skirt. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The embellishments shine on this Smooth ballroom costume by Doré. Firstly, Swarovski crystals decorate this dress. From the very beginning, they adorn the neckpiece with specialty large crystals dangling in the center of the neckpiece. Swarovski crystals on the neckpiece and mesh are a combination of AB and Crystal Dorado (gold). On the skirt, they are all Ab. Secondly, the dress has elegant gold beading. The beads form 3-D stripes on the bodice of the dress. Thirdly, the dress has accessories including four bracelets. The bracelets are nude dazzling with more AB and Crystal Dorado crystals.

Between the beautiful draping, the colors, and beading, this dress hints at the history of the Byzantine Empire. The Byzantine empire was known for its wealth and longevity, known as one of the greatest empires in the world.
