Alphonse Mucha’s sirens with their draped gowns floating in the breeze are the inspiration for this design. The silk chiffon with a delicate floral pattern and vertical lines evokes the decorative aesthetic of art noveau, as does the beautifully beaded trim used in the neckline and empire waist. The gown has draped sleeves and a split back that fastens at the back of the neck with a rhinestone clasp. Named for the woman whose face launched a thousand ships, this gown is sure to command attention.
