Seattle-based couture designer Luly Yang, never fails to deliver us with eye-popping dresses. This time too, her Monarch Butterfly Dress has successfully gained rightful attention thanks to its details and colors combination.
In 1999, Luly participated in a fashion show benefiting the Art with Heart Foundation which paired designers with paper companies. For Luly, what arose from the folds and cuts of her paper was something new, extraordinary, and revolutionary: The Monarch Dress. Iconic and an instant sensation, the Monarch Dress reawakened her love of fashion and convinced her to make the change from graphic to fashion design. It’s safe to say that the very Monarch Dress is what made Luly the world-class designer she now is.
Through her website, the dress is described as, “The haute couture “Monarch” butterfly gown was the design that launched Luly Yang’s career and remains her iconic, signature piece. The monarch butterfly wing is digitally printed onto silk taffetta and is ruched and draped into a whimsical two piece gown, adorned with hand placed Swarovski crystals and finished with ostrich feathers at the neckline.” The dress is very feminine; perfect for balls and formal events.
Not limited to a dress, the Monarch look also touches Yang’s various designed products. Skirt, velvet clutch, surplice dress, as well as a hem dresses that are inspired by the signature pattern can be found on her website. Yang also made a Papillion butterfly print silk ball gown available for purchase on her website for $6,500 a piece. The Monarch Butterfly Dress can be yours for $25,000. If you feel $25,000 for a dress is too much for your wallet, you can opt for the Monarch Print Suplice Dress.
