Burda goes retro

August 6, 2007

Hey, have you folks seen this frock at Burda Mode? Done right, this would look fabulous in a 50s fishtail wiggle dress sortofa way. Needs a few more darts for a better fit, methinks.

Of course, done the wrong way and it could be an 80s nightmare throwback. I’m thinking royal blue polyester satin and lots and lots of tulle.

A dangerous line to tread.
