Caliente

A Rhythm Latin ballroom dress named Caliente, meaning hot, after its fiery red color. To begin, the dress is asymmetrical. The right strap is made from a beautiful stretch crepe, that starts at the shoulder, drapes over the bust, and wraps around the left waist. In contrast, the left strap is made from appliqués. The front has a gentle sweetheart neckline, while the back neckline is deep and plunging. Furthermore, the crepe is beautifully gathered wrapping around the hips. From there, the dress changes from form fitting to a flirtatious flare skirt with an ostrich feather hem. Lastly, this Rhythm Latin ballroom dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The embellishments on this dress are both enchanting and meticulous. Firstly, AB Swarovski crystals adorn the dress. The appliqués that swirl elegantly on the strap shine with crystals, including large specialty ravioli Swarovski crystals. On both the front and back of the dress, the crepe that sits on the hips also have AB stones that mimic the swirling shapes of the appliqués. Additionally, AB crystals radiate on the bodice from the appliqué-like crystals on the mesh like beaming sun rays. In between the rows of AB, Light Siam crystals and red sequins alternate. Lastly, on the skirt, AB and Light Siam crystals glitter, as well as red and silver sequins.

Whether horizontal, vertical, thin, thick, or colorful stripes make a graphic statement. To continue, they can be slimming, bold, sporty, or a modern touch to something formal. Raf Simons, known for his modern touch, used lustrous chunky pink and black satin stripes sewn in angles to create an asymmetrical hemline for his Dior line. On our dress, the stripes are very slimming, and also add color blocking to the dress. The usage of stripes can elevate an already outstanding piece!
