It’s a logical flow-on from the one-shoulder fashion trend; a new breed of draping Grecian Goddess dresses. A notable runway trend for 2009, anything with a Grecian or Romanesque inspiration is a sure hit for the Spring/Summer 2009 season.

Grecian Goddess dress trendRunway looks from Chadwick Bell, James Coviello, Elie Saab, Valentino, and Kenzo.

Who Designed It

Classical one-shoulder draping graced the runways of Elie Saab, Valentino and others, while Kenzo’s dresses had more of a Romanesque tunic feel to them.

How to wear it

Make use of the ongoing gladiator sandals trend of course! Pair a more casual Grecian dress with flat, buckled sandals, or a lush flowing gown with strappy heeled shoes. If the dress is plain, team it up with some exotic statement jewellery to bring it well into 2009.
