Dragonfly II

Dragonfly II, a beautiful purple Rhythm Latin gown that is also a rental! Firstly, the bodice of the dress is made from a stretch knit fabric. The bodice is form fitting with a drop waist. The dress has a v-neckline on the front and back, however, the back is a deep plunging neckline. Heavy ruching takes place on the left hip on both the front and back. Secondly, the skirt transitions to a chiffon. It is sheer, so the many layers that compose the skirt can be seen underneath. The hem of the skirt finishes with a horsehair trim. The horsehair has metallic fibers that add shine to the dress. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups, a bodysuit, and an invisible zipper down the center back.

The embellishments sparkle and shine on this purple Rhythm Latin gown! On the front of the dress, lilac fabric appliqués adorn the dress. They are in abstract shapes and glitter with AB and Tanzanite crystal accents. Specialty large ravioli and rectangular AB crystals also adorn the inside of the appliqués. Furthermore, the entire bodice gleams with Tanzanite crystal accents, and is especially prevalent at the front and back necklines. This dress is waiting to dance on the ballroom floor!

We all love a vibrant print, from the closet staple stripes to a pretty floral motif. The abstract appliqués on this dress is where we drew inspiration for the dress name, Dragonfly II. The shapes look like loose silhouettes of a dragonflies zooming to and fro. The Duro Olowu Spring/Summer 2013 is a dream collection for anyone who loves a fun pattern, bold print, or plenty of color. From dresses that look like they are made from porcelain to Americana red, white, and blue flowers to dresses that look a Jackson Pollock splatter painting. One is sure to have fun with this trend!
