The Slender One - Orion


Known to the Greeks as Orion and to the Navajo as The Slender One; this iconic warrior of the night sky has dazzled diverse cultures for millenniums and inspired many stories. This dress utilizes three design elements to mimic the stars above and pays homage to the beauty of the natural world. The black rayon velvet represents the cool night sky. The crystal fragments flicker like stars when light reflects from them. The turquoise beads on the dress's train paints the constellation of The Slender One. Created from the highest quality of materials and Virginia's craftsmanship, this luxurious velvet evening gown is adorned with 17 Royston teardrop turquoise stones and accented with 47 hand stamped sterling silver buttons.
