Feel like a goddess on your wedding day in this timeless and elegant piece from the iconic fashion house of Vivienne Westwood: the Vivienne Westwood Long Cocotte dress in Silk Cady. This stunning dress, in excellent condition with only a few barely noticeable marks that are virtually invisible unless inspected up close, is the epitome of luxury and style.
Key Features and Benefits:
Timeless Elegance: Vivienne Westwood is renowned for her unique and avant-garde designs. This Long Cocotte dress exudes elegance and sophistication. The signature corset creates a fantastic push-up effect with no bra - this was one of the last wedding dresses designed by Westwood before she died and so it is a rare commodity.
Premium Silk: Crafted from the finest silk, this dress feels incredibly luxurious against your skin. It drapes beautifully and moves gracefully with your body, ensuring you look and feel your best. You'll see from the video the very flattering shade of white and the high-end look the silk cady gives - a beautiful fluid fabric.
This dress can be dressed up or down. Pair it with heels and a flowing veil for a classic bridal look, or, like me, biker boots and a leather jacket - this dress can really be styled to make it your own, the way Vivienne would have wanted! There is a string-and-button fastening to turn the train into a bustle for the dancefloor.
Exceptional Condition: Despite a few very minor marks (mostly at the very bottom of the dress) that are practically invisible unless closely inspected, this dress is in excellent condition. Dry cleaned and comes with branded VW tissue paper, dust sleeve, label, dress bag and large carrier - no-one will ever know it is second hand. I also have the receipt.
Investment Piece: Vivienne Westwood's designs are known for their enduring appeal. By owning this dress, you're not only acquiring a beautiful piece of fashion but also an investment in timeless style - designers final pieces before they die are unique, and the corset will never be made again like this. Many people dye and crop their Long Cocotte to take advantage the piece in their wardrobe forever as a reminder of their special day, or you can re-sell it knowing it will retain value being one of Westwood's last classic designs.
Whether you're a fashion connoisseur or someone looking to make a statement at the most special day of your life, you won't be disappointed with this purchase - this dress really made my day the best of my life!
The dress is designed to have numerous different style options on the drape at the top. The dress is tacked by the Vivienne Westwood dressmakers the way I requested it, but those tacks can be removed easily and the drape changed. Check out the dress on the VW website to see the options.
I also had elastic put into the shoulders so the off-the-shoulder look is more crisp (so less of the lining shows - it is not noticeable in any event).
