Long drapery dress
This dress was the last look in Emilia Wickstead's SS 2016 collection show. Bold contrasting chintzy prints combined in a demure, floor-length full skirted dress with unusual bodice seaming details. Kate Finnegan writing in The Sunday Telegraph said "the surprise was the puffy bustle-like form at the back. It was like a maternity dress in reverse and the effect was odd and historic and utterly desirable. When a designer can do that with a dress that makes you balloon in strange places you know she's playing a strong game." In March 2016 Emilia showed her collection again to audiences at iD Dunedin Fashion Week.
