About

Seductive Herve Leger Couture bandage dress in the most gorgeous turquoise color! At the early age of 23, Karl Lagerfeld recognized Herve Leger's talent and took him under his training. A few years later, while working for himself, he created the iconic bandage dress! They were inspired by his experience in designing bathing suits and some throwaway seam bindings. The first bandage dress was also the finale look of Herve Leger's 1989 runway show. The bandage dress, originally called "bender dress" became an instant sensation. They were called "bender," because they molded the body into the perfect female form. This garment has a stunning birdcage, cut-out outer shell. The carwash effect is stunning when you walk! I love the strapless bodycon underdress which pairs perfectly. As Leger once said, "I like to make women look beautiful, who want to please and be noticed."
