The dress skims over the hips and then is released at the knee and emphasized by the rectangular godet at the back. The evening gown also has two invisible side seam pockets. Fabric roses adorn the top of the godet. The horse hair hem keeps the dress out of the way of the wearer’s feet while adding a dramatic sweep of the train.

Branding Statement/ Bio Info:
My eponymous label “Corban Harper” is a ready to wear label whose customer is a woman looking for beautiful pieces that push fashion forward without compromising sophistication in terms of trends. The pieces are always charmingly feminine but also display a sense of modernity in their contemporary edge. My demographic seeks pieces that will grab attention with poise and refinement. Every piece is thought about from top to bottom inside and out to ensure that the fit, style and color not only enhance the beauty of the wearer but also remind them that they have bought a piece of art. My label is available for private clients as well.
The Corban Harper price point is on the higher end do to the quality of materials and the dedication to construction. Desired vendors would be fine retailers and boutiques in metropolitan areas.
