The Lupita Look ! Christian Dior X Kombe Collection Replication


Following the success of my first gown replication, I am currently obsessed with replications, particularly, gowns.
This time, I took on a Christian Dior dress worn by Lupita Nyong'o at the 2014 BAFTA awards.

The inspiration : An emerald green Dior dress worn by Lupita Nyong'o at the 2014 BAFTA awards

The dress had quite a heavily gathered train, which can make walking quite a task.

THE KOMBE COLLECTION VERSION
I must say that Satin is not an easy fabric to deal with. The amount of patience and precision required in cutting and attaching the pieces took several man hours, over about 4 days.
Here is what I managed to put together with the help of my team;

We opted not to style our version with a belt.

We cut back on the gathers and added more inner fabrics to give the dress the same body/volume, for easier movement in the dress.


Sweet and subtle makeup by Ms-Dixon!


I loved how simple but effective this makeup look was, It went well with the dress without doing too much. You've got to love Ms- Dixon
