Hera Peacock Print Dress

Alexandra King

The Hera Peacock Dress 

This beautiful print is a Liberty London design classic. I first used this print whilst at University for my final collection and was so pleased when I found a few metres of this again at a vintage sale a few years ago. Its my favourite print of all time.  

The design is currently not in print with Liberty making this a real treasure of a dress. The colours and peacock feather design are so decadent making this print perfect for a cocktail dress. Read more about the print here on the V&A website.

The dress features a hand draped strapless bodice using the sculpted fold of the fabric to create detail and form, I wanted to use the print fully not in cut sections and the skirt shows the print fully in a peacock flare. 

A party dress with Art Nouveau opulence and a one of a kind piece.
