Found this when reading of Fashionista on-line: “Kate Moss’s black long-sleeved dress for Topshop was named Dress of the Year by the Bath Fashion Museum.”
This UK museum has the world’s largest collection of historical fashion. We are left wondering who does the Dress of the Year judging.
This dress, designed by Kate herself, outdid top designers such as Calvin Klein, Versace, and Alexander McQueen. All from the model who stated that she is “not a proper designer.” If this is an example of un-proper design, we see why.
Though we usually love “all things Kate,” this dress is far from the fashion “WOW” factor. I think I threw out a dress like this in 1986. It may have been purple.
We just cannot see the big “win” here. Not when we found this Nina Ricci black runway dress for Fall 2009. Ready-to-Wear on Uliana Tikhova. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
