Style Notes

This exquisite draping from Ellery has already been seen on the likes of Olivia Palermo and Margaret Zhang. The interesting and architectural top is perfectly balanced with a carefully tailored fluted skirt. A faintly striped fabric and tiny cut-out add yet another dimension to this very modern Little Black Dress.

The Bonsai Ruched dress by Ellery is perfect to rent for making a statement at a work function or cocktail party. Pair with a strappy heel, bold red lip and a simple black clutch for a look that is sleek, chic and unique! For similar styles, take a look at our knee length designer dresses for hire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LBD for hens party I rented this for a friends hens party and it was the perfect dress for the occasion. It fits true to size (size 8) but not much give due to the material. It's very flattering and extremely comfortable to wear! I'd definitely consider hiring this dress for my next LBD occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dress I'm such an Ellery fan, I was do excited to wear this dress to a wedding. I thought it was navy on my phone, but it was actually black, which wasn't a problem (although I wore a dark burgundy lipstick with it, which made me feel a little like goth Barbie). Got plenty of compliments on it. The draping is truly gorgeous. Would reccomended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design This dress is so unique in design, and so wonderfully constructed. It's made of a heavier fabric so probably more suitable to a cooler climate! It also runs a little large, so i'd opt for the size down. Stunning and comfortable!
