Carefully overlaid with panels of lace, mesh and heavy embroidery, Jonathan Simkhai's silk organza dress takes time-honoured techniques and modernises them to stunning effect. Keeping the cut simple, this sleeveless design nips in at the waist before gently falling into an A-line. Note how the central woven embroidery cleverly looks like lacing, too.
