Deja Vu: Embellished Maxi Dress




Did you know: Oscar De la Renta is credited with creating the very first maxi – a trend that has since graced a billion fashionable ankles. In 1968 the New York Times praised a full length cotton lace dress that De la Renta had designed for the Elizabeth Arden salon and a fashion phenomenon was born. The 60's movie Dr Zhivago is also credited with some of the success of the maxi as fans craved the romance of Julie Christie’s flowing gowns.
