After many months in the works of preparation, we are delighted to release our NEW 2017 collection of formal dresses and evening gowns at Envious Fashions! For this collection we were inspired by the power of simplicity and decided the concept designs of the dresses would be based around timeless elegance, sophistication, chic sexy and versatility.

We spent many months gathering inspiration, envisioning, sketching and prototyping the designs for this year’s collection. After analysing and deliberation of the final styles, we made the decision that it will be a relatively small collection with a total of eleven designs and offered in a couple of colours per design. The design number is a noteworthy difference to our 2016 collection where we had a total of forty two different dresses designs however we only offered in one colour per design.

Did you know all of the Envious Fashion evening dresses and gowns are 100% handmade? Every aspect of the dress from the pattern cutting, to the sewing, to the beading and embellishments on the gown, each dress is individually made to perfection by our very skilled in house seamstresses.  

The Formal Dresses Inspiration

Whilst our focus was simplicity, we want to draw emphasis on the fact that simplicity needn’t need to be boring, especially when it comes to evening gowns. The gowns in our 2017 formal evening dresses collection are minimalistic in design but give emphasis to highlighting the female silhouette as the focal point. This collection features body hugging and form fitting style formal gowns, just the right amount of tightness whilst remaining comfortable to move around in. We are aware that many women avoid fitted styles because they feel this style of evening gown bring too much attention to their “wobbly bits” meaning they didn’t want the fitted area to be around their mid-section. We appreciate that women come in all different shapes and size and don’t want any woman to miss out on a stunning gown because they feel this way. That is why with Envious Fashion’s 2017 collection we have carefully picked out a beautiful fabric this comprising of polyester and spandex. This fabric is a mid-weight (not too stiff and heavy) fabric was chosen because of its body contouring and flattering properties. We have the perfect ratio of the two fabric composition that (1) flatters your body shape by hiding any imperfections (2) Highlights your favourable body curves (3) is stretchable and ultra-comfortable to wear. Doesn’t that just sound like the perfect dress? It really is!

The Formal Gowns Styles

With this collection we spotlighted off the shoulder styles as this is just an absolutely stunning style that is timelessly chic, sophisticated, sexy and oh so feminine. Have you ever worn an off the shoulder dress? Or an off shoulder top? Whatever it is, we’re sure you felt very feminine and pretty! This is a style that not only suits all body shapes, whether you’re petite, standard or plus size, an off the shoulder dress really does look amazing on.

With fitted style evening dresses, a mermaid style really sets off a glam chic look. We have incorporated the mermaid style dress with our 2017 collection and when combining all the individual elements of a gown concept together, the creation of an Envious Fashions evening gown comes to life.
