  1. Frock on Friday: Le Grande Gorman Dress

    Frock on Friday: Gorman's Le Grande dress, via WeeBirdy.com.

    Oh my flying fish. Bespeckled tigers, winged fish and hula-hooping trapeze ladies converge in this fantastical print from Gorman‘s new spring 2016 collection. Le Grande dress by name, le grande in style, as the carnival converges on the jungle in a celebratory mish mash of print and colour.

    You’d be forgiven for thinking it sounds almost too much, but it works beautifully in this sand-washed silk maxi dress, perfect for summer celebrations and night time soirees. The simple lines and neat pleated skirt bring a minimalist cut to a maxi print.

    Gorman, le grande Queen of le Prints, has done it again.

    (And no, it’s still not available in a size 16, but I remain holding a candle for us larger ladies. I fear those bust darts could barely contain my 16E boobs.)
