HTSI: Head-turning Dresses …

Flicking through the May 6 edition of HTSI (the FT’s How To Spend It magazine), the romance in my soul fell just slightly in love with the beautiful dresses, photography by Damian Foxe, in their Head-turning dresses for grand entrances – and exits feature.

I’ve featured my favourites here but click the link above to see more.

As a wheelchair-user, I so appreciated the Valentino, right and above, modelled in a seated pose though silk, lace and tulle at a cost of £13,285 might not be entirely sympatico with the harsh reality of the wheelie lifestyle … or indeed with most normal peoples’ lifestyle, I imagine.

However, applying the girlie romance filter … 💕💕💕
