The ‘Paso’ dress is inspired by the famous dance called the ‘paso doble’. This design features a stunningly bold sequin bodice in golds and bronze colours on a dramatic black base. The lace corset creates a dramatic look at the back as well as a perfect fit.
In the 1930’s a dance known as the ‘Paso Doble’ became a huge hit among the upper classes of Paris. It was a dramatic dance based around the story of the bullfight. Everyone wanted to be seen as knowing this remarkable dance. The woman in the dance typically represents the cape, moving with graceful curves that emulate the flow of a cape around the man as he swings it dramatically.
The ‘Paso’ dress with its dramatic bodice emulates the gold braid that is famous on the matadors jacket and trousers. The skirt consists of full circles made from soft tulle creating masses of volume which represents the fullness of a matador cape.
