What Women Want

As a petite woman of a meagre 5’3” I often struggle to find clothes which fit me perfectly, especially on the rare occasions when I can glam-up and am grabbing at the chance to wear a floor length gown.

It’s no revelation that all women come in different shapes and sizes and that we each have our own issues when it comes to finding clothes which we feel comfortable and confident in. When you find that one dress which slips on perfectly and sits just right, showing off the right curves (and hiding the others!), it’s a dream and you can’t let it go without buying it in every colour available.

A friend of mine passed on the name of this designer, recommending her as the brilliant creator of both, gorgeous figure enhancing pieces at reasonable and accessible prices. The moment I looked at her collection I was wowed by the variety of garments, able to appeal to a diverse audience of women, with items which are classic yet modern.

I particularly love this herringbone 60s inspired dress by the wonderful designer Nadine Merabi from her Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Her entire work truly reflects her talent in knowing how to dress women and compliment their figures in glamorous and classic silhouettes. 

This stunning black floor length gown similarly portrays her ability to tailor to the needs and wants of modern women. The dress is uber-glamorous, gliding over the female figure and keeping it young and fresh by subtly revealing little flashes of skin. Not too much, but just enough to keep it fun whilst maintaining a clear air of class and grace.

Next time I hit the red carpet (possibly in my next lifetime?!) I will certainly be looking at Nadine Merabi's collection and making a much anticipated purchase.
