Maxi Love

Monday, 11 March 2013

The maxi dress made its debut in 1968 at Elizabeth Arden’s Salon. Designed by Oscar de La Renta for Elizabeth Arden, the cotton lace dress that floated about the model’s ankles and was highlighted by “The New York Times” was a far cry from the floor-grazing maxi dresses of today. While de La Renta’s creation was not truly a maxi dress in the modern sense, it did cause quite a stir in the fashion world, where designers like Yves St. Laurent, Biba, Halston, Dior and Cardin picked up the new silhouette, and a trend was born. Peekaboo loves a Maxi Dress and we’ve got some stunning specimens from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s! Take a Peek below and don’t snooze because these beauties fly of the shelf!
