On a recent closet raid of Hania Farroukh’s wardrobe, she showed us how she turned a formal midi-length flower-print Mary Katrantzou dress into a cocktail-ready party dress temporarily.
Armed with extra large safety pins she folded the edge of the skirt inwards and pumped up the volume in the skirt by making sure enough fabric was folded inwards.
The dress itself is a classic piece of art and teamed with the right shoes, it gives a different look and feel to the outfit and makes the dress suitable for all occasions. Hania styled the evening red-carpet look with a pair of bright pink satin ballerina pumps by Aquazzura, lending it a sparkle of Cinderella.
She then gave the shortened version an edgy modern feel by teaming it with a pair of electric blue strappy sandals from Aquazzura as well. Necklace all throughout by Topshop. If you find yourself with no time to shop for an outfit, this last minute solution is about how to turn your dress from formal to cocktail.
