The Perfect Party Piece

The Perfect Party Piece

Clothes have the power to uplift and enthral. In the December issue, stylish women explain how their ideal festive outfit makes them feel.

Caroline Sleiman-Purdy is the co-founder and director of Coffeeangel, coffeeangel.com

What is it you love about this Rochas dress? “I was brought up in Lebanon, where French fashion is very prevalent. From a young age, French couture was all around me. I used to dress up in my mum’s evening clothes, devour magazines, and as I got older, I saved to buy pieces. It was love at first sight when I saw this Rochas dress. The detail is amazing: from the cut-out back to the shoulders and the pleating on the skirt. It’s elegant and timeless, but I also love that it can be dressed down with a cardigan or jumper and become a different outfit completely.”
