Caroline Charles' clientele has included prestigious women like Princess Diana, Marianne Faithfull, Barbra Streisand and Emma Thompson, all of whom fell for the ladylike elegance of her designs. This breathtaking dress is a perfect example of Caroline's opulent style, from the fall 1993 collection which Charles described as 'gothic meets dandy' and she featured this collection in the book of her career where the final design on the runway was in the same fabric as this dress, in a non-traditional bridal gown, which this dress would also be perfect for.
