Strawberry Passion

Strawberry Passion, a Smooth ballroom dance gown we are truly passionate about. And, we know you will be too! To begin, the dress is asymmetrical with one off-the shoulder long sleeve and one long sleeve. The base layer of the sleeve is a nude mesh, with a hot pink knit fabric draping over it. Similarly, a nude mesh makes the bodice. The pink fabric drapes over the bust, as well as adorns sections of the bodice. The back of the dress has a large opening, creating an open back. On the hips, the knit pink fabric gently gathers, adding texture and elongating the silhouette. The beginning of the skirt starts with the knit fabric, and transitions into a beautiful and blossoming floral fabric. The fabric is strawberry pink with flowers that are a couple hues darker than the dazzling strawberry. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

Sparkle and shine deepen our passion for this Smooth ballroom dance gown. Firstly, appliqués adorn sections of the dress such as the shoulders and waist. The appliqués are encrusted with iridescent premium crystals and elegant beads. They form paisleys and florals. Secondly, and most importantly, the finest crystals glitter all over this dress! From creating flowers on the appliqués to highlighting each and every gather on the hips. Thirdly, the dress has accessories including earrings and a neckpiece. The neckpiece matches the dress so perfectly, it looks as if it is attached to the dress!

Each season, designers update the flower, transcending its traditional history and speaking power to its timelessness. The “blushing blooms” trend embodies understated blossoms in shades of blush, carnation and flamingo. It nods to the undeniable grace and femininity of florals. This versatile trend can be seen in the luxe collections of Giambattista Valli and Laura Mulleavy.
