A seriously statement style, the Raphelite bow dress is Autumn Winter occasionwear all wrapped up! With its oversize gold jacquard bow detail & black velvet fitted silhouette it’s modern & classic combined.  This is the stunning gold Jacquard fabric we've used on the 'Diana' and 'Frances' dresses this season, a textured luxury fabric in a light champagne gold tone - so flattering and premium feel.

The Raphelite dress fits overall true to size - it is a premium quality stretch velvet, fully lined - if in between sizes we advise to size down as the stretch is generous.

With its good stretch it’s also a bump friendly style! Depending on your pregnancy stage just size up for comfort.

We LOVE this style for Winter weddings, how stunning would it be around Christmas or New Year! We styled with simple yet sparkly accessories - a sleek stiletto heel, embellished bag & crystal moon earrings in gold. 

It really is a figure-flattering shape, embracing your curves & giving a comfortable forgiving fit with the stretch - it’s our premium quality fabric & fully lined for a smooth silhouette. 
You can easily wear with a strapless or 1 strap bra, the back is not too low.


Dress fastens with a concealed centre back zip, as well as hook&eye fastener at the top.

Our model is 5ft 9 and wears a UK size 8.

Cool hand wash separately, do not bleach, do not dry clean, do not tumble dry.  Cool iron on reverse only and do not iron on trims.
