From High Style to High Street: Prada Edition



There is always one dress every season that causes a fashion frenzy amongst editors and stylists alike, all of them vying to have a particular look on a certain A-lister or a September cover and for S/S 2011 that was the Prada striped cocktail dress that flooded its way down from the white runway onto celebs and covers all over the world. As soon as the 'Seta Lana' dress hit the news stands it also hit the high-street and a medley of 'poor-man's Prada' copycat prints soon followed much to the delight of the more thrifty shopper, here I have charted it's evolution from Prada to Perkins, (Dorothy, that is.)

The original dress on the S/S2011 runway and the tailored version on Hailee at the SAG Awares

A cute copycat version from Dorothy Perkins for £19.99 available at www.dorothyperkins.com 

A Promod maxi dress that would be the perfect for a summer BBQ in the same print as the Prada version
