The Grecian style dress

It always amazes me how fashion recycles itself. Styles you swore you would never wear again after the 70’s or 80's is revamped on the catwalks year after year after year and we find ourselves wearing them again. Now fashion designers are going even further back in time to the roman days and so we have the Grecian style dress making a comeback on the catwalk.

We had Michelle Obama appearing in her Grecian styled inaugural ball dress designed by Jason Wu. But the Grecian dress is not only about the off the shoulder or cold shoulder dress but is also characterised by the flowing draping silhouette effect including grecian knots and halter cuts.

Not quite Michelle Obama's inaugural dress but this Draped Grecian Style Wedding Dress is both feminine and elegant. This full length wedding dress is beautifully designed and detailed with a draped and pleated front and deep V at the back. An exclusive, luxurious look from Autograph for your wedding day.

This works beautifully with simple accessories and flats or for a more glamorous look for evening - the plunging neckline allows for a statement necklace like Munique's Veil of the Incas silver jewellery gift set.
