The ostentatious wild cards of 20th century fashion, reborn ready for your next party



Here’s the deal: you might find a similar dress to this ‘80s original in Zara for a third of the price. You might find one from a brand that pushes meaningless statements on sustainability like ‘BEING HONEST IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN BEING PERFECT’, ‘WE TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO MONITORING OUR IMPACT’ and ‘WE HAVE NO PLANS TO SCALE UP OUR BUSINESS’ whilst persuading you to spend £300+ on a polyester dress that six people at the party will be wearing. Or you can shop vintage with this puff-sleeve, metallic gown and if anyone else is wearing it, you can have your money back.
