The Desdemona is a modern lace twist on the little black dress. Inspired by dark romance, it features geometric floral motifs that frame the body stunningly. The body con silhouette is flattering and falls into a full godet skirt from the hips. Wear this to an upcoming wedding, or evening gala and be sure to make an entrance!
This dress looks gorgeous on straight and curvy body types. It is one of our favourite little black dresses this season. Pair it with a black heel and rent some gold toned accessories to match. Wear your hair pulled back to really show off the intricate details of the dress around the décolletage and shoulders. For more outfit inspiration, check out our 'Gala Dinners Style Guide' blog post!
