Slice of Life

A Velvet Rhythm Latin Dress. This dress is classic elegance with a twist. It has two sides to it. Firstly, one side features a rich navy blue velvet stretch fabric. Secondly, the other side is nude and sparkles with Swarovski crystal stones. The 5mm stones are Swarovski AB and Light Colorado Topaz (a shiny light tan). Similarly, the large specialty ravioli stones are Light Colorado Topaz. The front has a V-neckline and features an open back.

The details on this dress are what make it so special. It is asymmetrical with its own rendition of a collar. The collar meets on the far right of the dress, from the velvet fabric and wraps around to the back. The side with the velvet has a sleeve that is gathered and beautifully drapes. The velvet starts on the top right side of the dress, and meets at the hips on the opposite side of the dress. The velvet Rhythm Latin dress has an exaggerated slant hem with Swarovski stones lining the hem. Lastly, the back of the dress has an elastic strap with a hook and eye, and an elastic strap across the waist with more Swarovski crystals.

The name for Slice of Life was chosen because it looks like the dress is a combination of two different dresses, sliced down the middle. Indeed, two-tone designs are in! You can see on the runway Roland Mouret who made his twist on a maxi dress by making it two toned, with half of the dress in navy blue and the other half in a coral orange. Other designers like Ports 1961 and Sally LaPointe did their own take on the timeless two-tone for Spring 2020. Why wouldn’t you love a two-tone dress? You can wear both your favorite colors at once, and very fashionably at that!
