This Sunday, Versace will kick off the Haute Couture shows in Paris.  I always love a Versace show for it's hyper-sexy with pimped out colors that exude exceess.  One of Gianni Versace's signature fabrics used throughout his career before his murder in 1987, was metal mesh made by the Australian company Oroton.  Oroton actually popularized the fabric in the 1960s and 1970s for men's and women's clothing and accessories.  The Oroton metal mesh dress below is deadstock (unworn) from the early 1980s and is a simple slip dress in the most seductive of fabrics.  One cannot hide anything in this dress as all is revealed as the mesh embraces every curve and crevice of your body.  This is a very naughty slip dress.  Anyway, can't wait to see how Donatella uses the signature fabric of casa Versace on Sunday.  Follow me on Twitter and Instagram as I will let you know before anyone else does!
