The Forever Dress

Meet the dress for every wardrobe, for every occasion, forever. Precision cut, with every seam, dart and contour expertly considered, The Forever Dress works wonders in enhancing the figure. Its pattern was drawn and hand-cut in our atelier, before being hand toiled and cut from cloth. Seams on the front and back sculpt the silhouette, and a leather belt cinches the waist and highlights an hourglass shape. A Queen Anne collar showcases the collarbone with a refined and elegant neckline.

After design, the final step is to grade in-house, to ensure the dress fits perfectly, whether you’re a size 6 or a 16.

The Forever Trouser

High-Waisted Black Trousers | The Forever Trouser | Karen Millen

These are the most flattering trousers you’ll ever own.

Crafted from the finest Italian fabric, they feature a special in-built corset-effect band, which holds you in at the waist, skims the stomach and perfects your figure, no matter your size or shape.

Leatherette detailing adds a subtle finish, while an ankle-grazing length elongates the legs. Such is the confidence-boosting magic of these trousers, you’ll never want to take them off – good job they work for almost every date in your diary, then.
