Matrix, a black dance dress by Designs to Shine. To begin, the Rhythm Latin dress is made of a black stretch jersey. It has a sweetheart neckline in the front. In the back, the neckline is a v-neck with a large keyhole. Hook and eyes connect the keyhole. Furthermore, the dress has long sleeves that are also bell sleeves. They are form fitting, and flare towards the end of the sleeve. The dress is form fitting with a flare skirt. Instead of them hem being a straight line, it zig zags with pointed pieces of fabric draping from the godets that make up the skirt. Lastly, this dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

Every black dance dress needs some sparkle, and this dress has it! Blue Zircon and AB premium crystals form floral motifs throughout the dress. The Blue Zircon makes the outline of the petals, and the AB is the center of the flower. Additionally, Jet Hematite stones adorn the rest of the dress, ensuring the black fabric shines. Turquoise and black pieces of fringe drape from the bell sleeves and bodice. Finally, this dress also comes with accessories including a pair of clip earrings and a neckpiece that is shown in the picture.

Embellishments can create and define a garment. Daniel Roseberry for Schiaparelli has taken embellishments to a completely different level for the 2020 Spring/Summer collection. The most notable piece was a true blue structural dress that looked like a hurricane encapsulating the model. But it is not the dress that stood out, but the embellishments. Crystals, gems, and pearls were placed all over the dress, as well as the model’s face and bare arms. In the ballroom world, embellishments like European crystals shine bright, and a dress feels incomplete without them. At Encore, we have all the shiny ballroom treasures!
