Searching for ballroom gown inspiration? Gwenivere, is a ballroom must have! A gorgeous nude Smooth ballroom dress with pop of color magenta detailing. Firstly, the bodice of the dress is made from a stretch fabric in nude. Features include a scoop neckline, long sleeves, and a form fitting silhouette. Pieces of a velvety magenta fabric are sewn on the nude, and create whimsical yet glamorous motifs on the dress, from wavy lines like the ocean’s waves to fan-like shapes. Furthermore, the skirt has several godets made from a lustrous satin fabric in magenta. Lastly, this ballroom gown has built-in bra cups, a bodysuit, an an invisible zipper down the center back.

The embellishments on this Smooth dress shine brightly! Sparkling top of the line European crystals in AB and Fuchsia outline the magenta fabric. The two colors alternate, emphasizing each and every motif. From the zebra stripes on the sleeves to the circles in the center of other shapes. To conclude, add an AB crystal earring and matching Fuchsia lip to complete the look!

Sequins, stones, appliqués, or all of the above? Ballroom is the cremé de la cremé in adding ornamental details to complete a luxurious look. Haute couture fashion houses love adding appliqués too. Bring on the broaches, with Schiaparelli‘s dramatic, poetic, and over the top styling of an already dramatic royal blue dress. Broaches of several colors shone on the dress, as well as travelled onto the skin of the mode, placed on the face and arms. Comme des Garçons created an entire ready to wear line based off of an iron-on embroidery appliqué in the shape of a red heart. The “play” collection featured various designs of hearts with large black eyes. Here at Encore, we have endless options. Do you want feathers or fringe or feathery fringe?
