This is a dress designed by Mario’s Schwab and pattern cut by me for his AW2009 collection.

So who did wear it best? Or did they all wear it in their own sexy, elegant way?

Sienna Miller of Cheryl Cole or Najda Swarovski?

Sienna Miller was the first to wear it shortly after the collection was shown at a screening of ‘The Mysteries of Pittsburgh’ in New York City in April 2010 (she wore the simple version with no crystals). Cheryl Cole wore it later in the year in November 2010 on one of the X-Factor shows where was a judge. Miller opted for the simple version where as Cole went for the version with the crystals. In November 2011 Nadja Swarovski wore the original catwalk design dress version. Each has her own way of wearing it and accessorising it.  All versions are great and all three ladies look very elegant.

The dress it’s self took 2 attempts to get it to the point that Schwab was happy with it, using Flat Pattern cutting and Drapping. It was also one of the last pieces I did that season. On the outside it looks simple but as always most of the mechanics are on the inside of the dress.

I will let you decide who wore it best.

This dress even made it as the main feature of Browns Window Shop!

It made front cover of Dazed & Confused Magazine! The August issue centered around 3D fashion. Accompanied by 3D glasses, the issue is inspired by the 3D-based collection of Marios Schwab and  featured photography by Terry Tsiolis and styling by Nicola Formichetti.


It also made the special edition of the Latina 15th anniversary issue. The dress is far right as you look at the picture and if you look closely enough you will see that the photographer flipped the image so the detail looks like it is comming from the right shoulder rather than the left. the dress was worn by Alani La  La Vazquez.

It made it into the Evening Standard. (click on link to read more)
