Lattice Pearls Beaded Bodice Gown

Warm summer nights and bright, balmy days are the essence of Collette Dinnigan’s Summer 2011 collection. It’s just how I dream of Summer to be (instead of the dismal attempt Australia put on this year!) Again Collette is embracing more traditional A line shapes, but still with the feminine style she is renowned for.

The new collection of elegant gowns with have a lightness to them with delicious details like pearl beaded bodices, silk organza blooms, soft, cascading ruffles. beautiful embroidery and crystal encrusted bodices.
