NVY dress by Frank Usher.Please

NVY stands for 'Not Vintage Yet' - we apply it to garments which are too gorgeous to just pack away for the next twenty-five years - like this recent and very lovely floaty summer party dress by Frank Usher.
Flatteringly cut as you'd expect, this dress is somewhat understated for Mr Usher; although it does feature a fixed wrap top, with extra fabric which wraps right around the back to give the effect of a streamer. I wish I could show you on a real model - it's impossible to photograph movement on a dummy!
This picture, if you look closely, shows the concealed side zip with which the dress fastens, and also the end of the streamer, fixed at the top of the back. The dress is lined throughout, with a top layer of floaty chiffon.
The bodice has double spaghetti shoulder straps, each with a flower at the join with the bodice. This dress is in lovely condition - I can't see any signs of wear at all - and is marked as a size 12, which I would say is about right.
