Miranda Wearing Maggy
London - Catch the SATC Buzz...
Fashion Article Posted June 11, 2008
This dress (the black and ivory chain link silk sheath) is the only look from the film that is the real deal, that you can actually afford. $150. Looks like a high-end designer. It proves that you really do not need to spend thousands of dollars to look like you have. While it is only $150, it looks designer and fits right in with the other outfits on Carrie, Charlotte and Samantha. This is what Maggy London is all about. Their dresses are always inspired by the runway looks, but no exact replicas. They create their own version of the trend, have a huge business and they are the #1 selling dress company on nordstrom.com to back it up.
"In prepration for the film's release, we cut several hundred dresses and sold to a small handful of retailers - we brought the style back from last spring season in anticipation for a demand. By Friday morning (5/30), not only were all of the dresses sold out but a waiting list immediately formed - Women wouldn't take no for an answer! The dresses won't be ready until July but women are willing to wait. It is unlike anything the company has ever experienced in the 30 plus years they've been in business. There are always "Splurge vs Steal" and "Get the Look for Less" stories, but this the actual look! In a movie where the fashion is just as much a character as the 4 women...it's amazing that a virtually unknown dress company emerges in the fashion world among the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, etc. I worked with wardrobe, sent samples and this one worked, amidst the Versace, Cavalli, Hererra, etc."
The dress is available for pre-order at dillards.com.
