About

This stunning haute couture dress in ivory silk crepe would be the perfect choice for a summer party. The minimalistic cut and high neck to the front juxtaposes the open back beautifully, while a crystal trim to the adds sparkle. The finishing touch is a fabric-matched bow that fastens to the back of the neck.

Carmen de Tommaso entered into the world of fashion after her mother informed her she would "never be elegant" standing at only five feet one inch. Reinventing herself as Marie-Louise Carven, the Carven house founder began designing clothing that represented the chic French style, flattering those with a petite figure such as the women of Parisian high society and singer Edith Piaf
