Mercury Rising

This Designs to Shine Rhythm Latin ballroom dress is out of this world! It is a form fitting dress with black spaghetti straps. The top of the dress is made of a black stretch knit fabric. Royal purple sequin fabric forms the skirt from the waist down. The dress is asymmetrical with the sequin fabric being longer in the front than it is in the back. Fringe adorns the skirt and is longer with the back. The hem is a dramatic slant hem. The back has several hook and eyes going down the center. Lastly, it has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The embellishments on this dress are what make it truly one of a kind. On the front of the dress, large diamond shape appliqués attach in the middle of two lines, like musical notes dancing in between musical bars. They become 3D, lifting off the dress, and forming an off-the-shoulder sleeve. Furthermore, they hug the back of the dress at the waist and before the fringe hem. The appliqués are made with Swarovski crystals from large specialty stones to AB stones. Additionally, the rest of this dress has heavy stone work. The bodice breaks up into sections of color blocking using the fabric and Swarovski stones. It alternates between purple Swarovski crystals, black lace, and Jet Hematite Swarovski crystals. This dress is a unique piece, and it is eye-catching from any angle.

This Designs to Shine Rhythm Latin dress looks like stars floating in the Milky Way. A galactic piece made from star dust, crystals, and magic! Similarly, Italian Fashion Designer, Schiaparelli‘s, 2019 Haute Couture line was inspired by seeing stars. Her line features galaxies orbiting on dresses and stars beaming on blouses. You can be seeing stars too, in our dress, Mercury Rising!
