A Price anyone can afford!

I'm not one to point the finger, but the proliferation of sculpted cocktail dresses, thigh-grazing hems and lashings of velvet on the catwalks for A/W 2009 could only make me think of Antony Price (and rumour has it more than one international taste-maker was dropping his name as a 'research avenue' to the Brit contingent in their studio). So, considering we literally have the blueprint for one of his knock-em-dead cinched and winched bombshell frocks at our fingertips thanks to his contribution to our design_download series, we figured it was the perfect time to craft our own version of Price's 1989 Macaw dress. Our intrepid design intern Kate Swingler has been hard at work cutting the calico toile this afternoon (and very kindly allowing me to bother her with SHOWstudio's camera phone), and tomorrow she'll get stitching! Stay tuned for the results soon...
