All eyes on you whether for the Holiday season, coming Valentines Day or any of your favorite occasions! This "Ruby Collection" Design is an exclusive limited edition of only 5 pieces manufactured for the worldwide market*. You can choose between a standard size made for you (XS or S or M or L or XL; with or without customizations) or a full made-to-measure.


This subtle sheen of Cotton Velvet in this beautiful shade of Ruby Red (Medium Red, just between Dark Red and Regular Red) paired with heavy draping and texture. 

This dress features a wide, almost off-shoulder neckline in the front and slightly lower neckline in the back, a decorative button front (non-functional) and a hand-pleated skirt section. A beautiful draping in the front creates an illusion bow-shape cascading down the upper hips - a wonderful vintage silhouette detail.


The dress closes with a back, lapped, metal zipper. Fully lined bodice. It also features formed bust darts for a beautiful, slightly pointy bust section (perfectly when worn with a strapless pointy bra). Authentic hand-stitched hems, facings and details all-over.


Classic tea length (see sizing table) or custom length (Free of charge 0,00CHF). Dress shown with a light petticoat- not included.


The matching shoe clips are included and create a perfect ensemble. The clips can be attached to any heels or flats of your choice. Classically pointy shoes create this extra authentic look, giving you an authentic midcentury inspired style. The bows are slightly wired to keep them in a curved shape for a perfect illusion and fit around your shoe. Clips sold without shoes.


*  Excluding one exhibition piece made for the company archives. Each piece comes numbered and with a certificate of authenticity. The dress is displayed on an original half scale mannequin. A mean to display luxury garments in an even more sustainable way with material waste being minimized and resources being used even more thoughtful- just like how it was done for Parisian Couture post WWII.
