Reintroducing the fun to occasion dressing, Emilia Wickstead is the London-based designer who's making sartorial waves with bold, patterned design. Fine fabrics are key to her creations – like many Central Saint Martins graduates – and this gown is crafted from cloqué and crepe to enhance the weighty A-line silhouette. A sea of stripes stirs in movement while the turtleneck cut is shaped with a small cutout ensuring you're anything but a wallflower.
