Absolutely fabulous Hardy Amies Couture silk dress made from shot silk with amazing yellow and black detailing and pearlised buttons running all the way from collar to hem.
It has a lovely pussy bow detail if you wanted to wear it done up but equally looks great left open. As it is a couture piece it doesn’t have a size label in it but judging from the fit on our mannequin (which is a size 8) I would say it would fit a 10/12 depending on how loose/blouson you like it.
Sir Edwin Hardy Amies, KCVO (17 July 1909 – 5 March 2003), known as Hardy Amies, was an English fashion designer, founder of the Hardy Amies label and best known for his official title as dressmaker for Queen Elizabeth II, from her accession to the throne 1952 until his retirement in 1989.
He established the monarch’s crisp, understated style of dress. “I don’t think she feels clothes which are too chic are exactly very friendly,” he told one fashion editor. “The Queen’s attitude is that she must always dress for the occasion”.
