Designers are sometimes influenced by each other. The writer and director John Houston said that there are no new stories, it is just how you retell them and I think the same could be said of fashion. Now this dress:
The great Marisa Berenson in Loris Azzaro
certainly inspired this dress:
The label reads, Carnaby Street, Roma. Carnaby Street was famous in the 1960s as THE place for hipsters. So some design house in Rome was doing an early 'fast fashion' version of the Azzaro dress and it must have been a store that catered to eager young stylish clients who wanted Azzaro's ultra glamorous, ultra sexy chic with a bit of rock-n-roll Stones/Marianne Faithfull vibe at more affordable prices. Whew! That was a mouthful! What I mean to say is simply that the dress is super cool and affordable - no matter who designed it and where it was from!
