Fall 2016 - 3 examples of Ready-to-wear by Alessandra Rich
Although Alessandra Rich is famous for her evening wear, she has numerous articles of other fashionable outfits available online. Her designs and creations have revived the use of luxurious materials, such as silk, crepes, and jerseys. Her collection is cross cultural, hip, and edgy and, at the same time, chic. There is something for everyone and for every occasion. For fall 2016, Alessandra Rich has introduced a feminine collection dubbed ‘Dolores’ which is punctuated by stretches of shoelace, frilled and fluted hems, as well as huge, puffy sleeves worn off the shoulder.
Tiered Lace Gown: This is an off-the-shoulder style with a ruffled elastic top that is secured to the shoulder by velvet straps. The material is a dusty pink silk-crepe blend and the dress features a flared, fishtail hem. The dress is ankle-length and can be set off by slipper pumps or stiletto heels.
Black Silk Sleeveless Dress: This dress can easily be worn for afternoon parties or evening galas. Made of luxurious black silk, it features a ‘U’ neck, front buttons. The mid-length skirt is pleated. This is an extraordinary dress that can be paired with a bejeweled jacket or a sequined bolero for evening dates at the opera or worn with a cashmere sweater for a late afternoon meeting with colleagues.
Chambray Mini Dress with Maxi Skirt: This is a combination set – a pale blue chambray mini dress cut with a close fitting bodice paired with a “point d’esprit tulle” lace maxi skirt which is worn under the mini dress. Both are a cotton and cotton blend, non- stretchy material requiring dry cleaning only. The mini dress can be worn with stretchy thigh-length tights in either pale blue or white to match the dress trim.
