Kimmera Madison of Tres Beau continues her exploration and love of all things Asian, in her creation entitled "Princess Aura."
The simple quiet charm of this elegant dress is one of those timeless, border-less dresses that refuses to be pigeon-holed. Like all the traditional pieces, this one can be worn to an early morning tea or an elegant dinner party, depending on your hair and accessories. Kimmera has allowed for the peplum to be optional and it can also be resized so there is no problem achieving the exact look you are after.
The dress itself is a traditional cheongsam which basically means "long dress." These are so incredibly popular and some version of them always seems to make its way into the fashion parades each season. Kimmera's version keeps the influence alive, using a traditional Asian pattern of deep reds, black and white. It is accented with a mandrin collar and black frogs. The full leg slits ramp up the volume and you just know where ever you go, heads will turn. Adding one of Kimmera's gorgeously detailed peplum gives creates a silhouette you have come to know and love from Tres Beau and gives the cheongsam a freshness that speaks to this season.
The dress is available in store now and retails for $800L.
