Project D Helliconian Tapework Lace Dress

The Project D Helliconian Tapework Lace Dress is a black sleeveless open tapework dress with a scoop neck and back. The dress has shoulder straps embellished with black lace and the dress itself is lined in a nude fabric. It has an exposed back zip fastening and falls to knee length.

It is available in UK sizes 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16

Fabric and care: 100% polyester; lining 97% polyester, 3% spandex; dry clean only

Project D have a number of lace dresses in their range for the new AW 2012 season, but I think that this one has to be the most striking. The open tape work teamed with the nude lining gives the dress a dramatic look, and it would certainly be suited to wearing at an important function or black tie dinner. This is a dress that is a wardrobe classic, and you will be able to wear it any season; it’s also nice to accessorise, and in the photo the look has been completed with the Sam Edelman blue suede Danielle shoes, the Diane Von Furstenberg box clutch and the Mawi Tear drop pendant.

The Project D Victorine Lace Dress is a sheer black lace dress that is lined in an oyster nude coloured fabric to the body and skirt, leaving the sleeves sheer. The dress has cap sleeves and a boat neck, with a fitted bodice and a longer length pleated skirt. The neck, sleeves and hemline are all trimmed in scallop edge lace and the dress has a concealed back zip fastening.

It is available in UK sizes 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16

Fabric and care: 00% nylon; lining 97% polyester, 3% polyurethane; dry clean only

Lace dresses are still big fashion news, and I particularly like this one as the nude coloured lining “lifts” the dress, but the longer skirt makes it very ladylike. I could imagine Kate Middleton being at home in this dress, and it will be interesting to see if she adds it to her collection over the coming season. The dress is easy to accessorise, and the model has chosen black courts (Sam Edelman Danielle), the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Glitter Clutch and a Mawi necklace.

This Project D Dress is a primarily grey, pure silk dress, that has the impression of being a living watercolour painting, having been “daubed” with floral inspired crimson, white and black brush strokes. The dress has a boat neck, bracelet length sleeves, a hidden zip fastening at the back and it falls to floor length.

It is available in UK sizes 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16

Fabric and care: 100% silk; lining: 97% polyester, 3% polyurethane; dry clean only

This dress has an elegance all of its own. Lacking embellishment, the pared back, sleek design in pure silk is understated yet nevertheless manages to deliver a welcome dose of glamour. This is a dress for the girls who want to avoid the obvious sequin and metallic embellishments of other dresses yet still want to look glamorous enough for the red carpet. The neutral colouring gives you a free reign to choose accessories, and the model has taken advantage of this by teaming the dress with the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Clutch in silver and the Sam Edelman Danielle blue suede shoes.

For a black tie dinner or the red carpet, it would be difficult to find a dress more totally and utterly dripping in glamour than this high octane dress from Project D. Called Itala Ocean, the dress is covered in an ocean of sequins and the one shoulder design is inviting a statement bracelet cuff embellishment to the opposite arm. Complete the look with discrete black accessories and leaving this glamorous dress to take centre stage.
