The Gala Milonga on Saturday night at the Frostbite Tango Festival in Helsinki, Finland was an occasion for a special dress.
I wore this beautiful green silk dress, handmade by Ella Sharp – Todo Trajeado. Ella lives in London, designs for Todo and teaches/lectures on fashion.
This dress is so delicious. It positively swishes around my legs, flares softly with my movement and hugs every curve (stand up straight Reet Petit!) without moving an inch.
What’s more it packs so nice – no creases – and you can throw it in the wash (wool cycle) without a worry.
Superb tango dress. Thank you Ella!
