I was just poking around the internet and ended up looking at Catherine Maladrino's spring/summer collection. I see this dress but all I really see is an imprint of an iron. Something I sadly recognize from a disaster or two.

Or am I just crazy.....

I bet if you went and tried it on you might think differently! I think it's cute...no iron. LOL

Sure looks like the steam vents to me!

Designs are taken from nature all the time...perhaps this is the start of a new trend.

Oh great! Maybe next time I do that, I can remember to simply bead over the imprint!

I can see the picture in the design room now:
Two people are standing over a pressing board with a large industrial iron (gravity feed, mind you) sitting up on the end. One is looking at the fabric, the other is looking at the other person.
"What did I do?" is the cry from the one looking at the fabric.
"Don't worry; we'll use it on our next dress. And we'll charge a high price so no one will notice what we did", says the other.

Apart from the iron print, the neckline on the dress is really nice. I used to wear that type alot when my shoulders were younger.

"Let's bead around the neckline too so nobody will notice"

Like the color, it would probably make a really nice shirt for me -LOL

Yes, I could see that! Even though I think that's someone's carefully laid out and engineered as a computer file fed to a lazer cutting machine, kind laser cut design through the fabric instead, and even though I think garment probably never ironed and they just use some kind of hand held steamer when unpacking it instead.

But design inspiration can come from anyplace, and if you sew and iron anything, and have ever done that, that is what it reminds one of, now that you mention it!

That dress would be quite pretty if it were plain on the bottom. The top part is lovely (although even that is a bit overdone). The bottom part has a definite "iron" thing going on, as well as some curious design placement.

Holes in fabric, in dresses, seem to be a big thing this season, and really expensive too. Less if you sew though I guess. I saw this dress in a few fashion magazines, thought it was kind of unusual, but had no idea of the price. Then saw it over on net a porter and priced. Wow! They call it embroidered, but I see no thread embroidery on it at all, but do see a whole lot of two part press in rivet kind of studs with holes in them. But that and the photo print on the satin, and I guess the name on it, made it an almost nine thousand dollar dress. That did shock me. It's a Proenza Schouler dress.

Love it, although I agree just the top design is enough for me. The website states that it perforated leather .
