When designers present their collections, one thing that keeps the fashion audience glued to their seats (except of course it’s a Chanel show) is the final dress. Everyone wants to see it, because most designers allow their most favorite dress in the collection go out last, either worn by a celebrity or a super model. These dresses are usually very dramatic and in most cases, not functional. The final dress is usually the pride of any designer, because as the model struts away in it, and the audience is applauding the works of the designer, it provides the best moment to take a bow.
Here are some of the most dramatic final dresses we saw on the S/S 2012 runway, plus all from Arise: Made in Africa show.
