Metamorphosis - Luly Yang - Couture Dress

‘Metamorphosis’ by Luly Yang, an exquisite couture dress. Seattle couture dress designer, Luly Yang, celebrated her ten year anniversary with a runway show called ‘A Monarch’s Tale: The Journey of a Decade,’ on April 27th. Tickets were $500 for a front row seat and open seating beyond the third row at $100 per ticket. This dress is created in silk, Swarovski crystals and black ostrich feathers at the top of the bodice. The original Monarch Butterfly dress was made of paper when Luly was a graphic designer. The reason for the paper dress was the fashion design contest she entered at the time required that the dresses be made of paper. She began with a very small two inch design of a Monarch butterfly wing, blew it up, had it printed on paper as posters and then made the dress from that. When she became a couture fashion designer and she re-did butterfly the design in fabric like you see pictured displayed in the window of her store.

After ten years in the business, Luly is a world recognized couture designer, her specialty is formal wear and custom bridal gowns. Her shop is in downtown Seattle on 4th Avenue at University Street, and the window displays are gorgeous. She has a staff of seven and has about thirty dresses under construction at any one time. It is said that this silk butterfly dress retails for $25,000 dollars. If I were young, rich and looked like Catherine Zeta-Jones in the movie ‘Entrapment,’ when she wore that couture red dress, I would buy this butterfly dress in a heart beat and ‘go to the ball,’ and look like a million bucks! Would you?
