One of the most fabulous designers of formal wear who I have only recently personally discovered has to be Alexis Mabille. He tailors for women of all tastes, from classic and simple style to the most ostentatious and glamorous gowns. His gorgeous collection would fit any number of occasions, perfect for a sophisticated afternoon tea with friends or a red carpet event where you need to turn each and every head.
I absolutely adore the cut of this dress, skimming the body to give a beautiful silhouette. The dark navy colour palette works perfectly to give a real sense of drama and effect within the draping at the front and makes it a fabulous evening dress perfect for any cocktail party.
I love the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of this dress. The neckline is incredibly intricate and delicate, yet the simple draped skirt avoids the outfit becoming fussy or overstated. The muted mustard colours and white lace mean it could be worn to a daytime BBQ or dressed up with glamour gold sandals for an evening soiree.
Finally, this dress has to be my favourite. It has an Asian vibe with the slit neckline and it's silk and beaded detailing. It, again, seems simple yet super glamorous and chic. If only it came in more colours, I can imagine this piece looking stunning in a midnight blue or rich, mahogony, red.
When looking for the perfect evening gown this season, look no further than the marvellous Mabille who is sure to have designed an absolutely stunning party piece, ideal for your next big occasion.
