There are few fashion designers with a better reputation than Carolina Herrera. She may not be the best known designer in the world but this is mainly because she tended to stick to the high-end couture market. The result is that her company is one of the most successful fashion houses in New York! Herrera's business started small, with just a dozen employees, but soon grew rapidly. The socialites who knew her became some of her first devoted customers and women like s tycoon Estee Lauder and former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis became close clients. This beautiful formal gown from her 2005 Spring collection is a wonderful example of her genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; ivory polka-dot patterned "light as a feather" silk organza. The bodice is a seductive fully-boned strapless complete with ruffle detail. I adore the matching cropped capelet with stylized bow! The hourglass nipped-waist flows into the most stunning tiered skirting. The dramatic back train finishes this show-stopper with a perfect ethereal vibe.
