Orchid Extravaganza

This elegant Smooth ballroom dance costume is Orchid Extravaganza. An orchid purple dress by Doré. Firstly, the dress begins with a sheer magenta mesh. It makes up the shoulders and front neckline. The bodice transitions into a stretch knit fabric. It is form fitting, with a drop waist, and an open back. Furthermore, the skirt is full and made from several layers of fabric. The outermost fabric is a sheer tulle. It looks as though it is pleated because of all the gathers where it attaches to the dress. The tulle is sheer, showing the lustrous satin underneath. Lastly, this dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The embellishments on this Smooth ballroom dance costume are breathtaking. Swarovski crystals and pearls form feather like shapes wisping up the bodice of the dress. The Swarovski crystals include Crystal Dorado, Fuchsia, Purple Velvet, and more. The pearls are similar to a gold. The combination of embellishments form the feather-like motif, as well as shine in all the spaces in between. Additionally, the dress has 2 wristbands as accessories. Imagine yourself in your partner’s arms, dancing on the ballroom floor with the skirt flying around you and crystals glistening in light wearing this mesmerizing dress!

A drop waist, is where the waist line of the dress is at the hips or lower, rather than the natural waist. If done correctly, a drop waist can be very flattering, elongating the body making one look both slimmer and taller. Gucci celebrated its 90th birthday, bringing back art deco, flapper-esque fashion, and the drop waist! A Spring Jazz revival of sorts! From drop waist dresses with fringe skirts to over the top exaggerated silhouettes that cinched in at the hips. Want to stand taller than your opponents on the ballroom floor, this dress is perfect for just that!
