Sportswear emerged in New York as this seasons biggest theme. From parachute dresses at Altuzarra to floral hoodies at Alexander Wang. One of the biggest sportswear designers that came out of the 30's is Vera Borea, based in Paris. She designed sportswear for women because she found it difficult to find good quality sportswear at an affordable prices. As her fame grew, so did her collections. She expanded in ready to wear making beautiful elegant dresses. One her signature was the empire waist. This dress from Vera Borea Paris has all the elements of spring 2012; the color, the easy flow and the carefully thought out mix of beads and tiny gold leaves paillettes sewn onto the straps and around the empire waist. It is the perfect dress for a cocktail party, if you are attending a wedding or simply dinner date on a much deserved vacation. Work on your tan and you will look like a goddess made of gold.
