Todashi Shoji has a similar gown called Crinkle Chiffon and Lace Gown with Jeweled Belt in Blue Stone. The gown is described by Todashi:“Exquisite draping on our chiffon and lace gown beautifully accentuates your figure. A hand-beaded inset on the attached belt sparkles at your waist. Lace inserts on the sweetheart neckline, bodice side and cap sleeves add a feminine touch.”
This gown is also available at Neiman Marcus and called the Lace Sweetheart Neckline Gown. The Gown is described as:” Lace and pleating take center stage on this Tadashi Shoji gown.
