BEST SELLER SPOTLIGHT: MILANA EMBROIDERED TULIP DRESS
Posted on 16 March 2016
The Milana Embroidered Tulip Dress is a MESTIZA NEW YORK Best-Seller!
The dress was named after Co-Founder, Louisa Rechter's soon-to-be niece, Milana Ray, who was born on November 30, 2015. Since MESTIZA NEW YORK is a heritage-inspired line, we pay homage to muses of the past in our designs but also look to the future. Although Milana is still quite small, we have faith she will grow up to be a beautiful and stylish MESTIZA girl. Her mother, Libby Ray, bought a Milana Embroidered Tulip Dress for a Spring wedding and to pass it down to Milana when she grows up!
The Milana Embroidered Dress is fully embroidered. In the Philippines, embroidery is a technique you often see in formal attire. The men wear beautiful Barongs and the women wear Maria Claras with ornate details that are so unique. We took the embroidery-concept and fashioned it into a modern high-low silhouette. Embroidery is a very time-consuming endeavor, it takes our weavers about 4 months to complete. Here is a close-up shot of the embroidery.
Our online clients love this stye. It's feminine, structured and very detailed. There really isn't anything else like it. They know if they buy it for their next event, they will stand out and no one else will have it. Co-founder and designer, Alessandra Perez-Rubio, wears it with Rag&Bone heels which give it a more casual vibe for date night or drinks out with friends. We love it for weddings or formal luncheons. Garden party, anyone??
Store buyers also love it and are incorporating it in their assortments this Fall. The benefit of shopping with us is that you get it EARLY!
The Milana Dress is almost sold out! We are going to bring it back for Fall but we suggest buying now so you can avoid the wait!
It also comes in a pink and red combination!
