Today Cindy Roberts, owner of Dress & Dare Couture, showcased her bold Fall Winter 2012 collection. Dress & Dare is located in the Thrupps Illovo Centre, just off
The beautiful boutique provided the perfect backdrop for the glamorous, elegant and sophisticated fashion that graced the runway, while customers admired the clothing and sipped champagne.
For those inspired by 50’s icons like Audrey Hepburn and Marilynn Monroe, the Dress & Dare Fall Winter Collection is ideal.
The collection is made up of statement pieces; both smart-casual and corporate clothing are attractive and edgy. From boots, bags, belts and shoes to jackets, skirts, waistcoats and scarves, camel features as this coming Winter’s staple. Electric blue, fiery reds and oranges and hot pink are paired with camel for a pop of colour. There are also subtle suggestions of fur in both accessories and clothing. Key pieces include the swing coat, knee-length pencil skirt and dress, fur leg warmers and the pussycat blouse.
This season the length of the boot has been extended thigh-high while ankle boots remain trendy. Lace-up boots are also big in the collection.
Overall, Dress & Dare’s 2012 Fall Winter collection boasts beautiful 50’s inspired pieces that strike the perfect balance between straight lines and feminine curves.
Dress & Dare Couture was established in August 2008 as an exclusive 'View By Appointment Only" Boutique. In September 2011 Cindy Roberts turned her life-long dream into a reality and opened up the exclusive Salon Prive, which offers the latest in all fashion trends, to the general public.
Cindy Roberts’ flair for fashion, love for people and personal service is what sets her boutique apart from others. “At Dress & Dare we dare the senses and dress the emotions of every woman. It is a place where women can express themselves, no matter their likes, personality or lifestyle.” Dress & Dare pride themselves on styling and selecting an outfit to match every type of body, personality and lifestyle.
