Happy anniversary Anna Sui! Thirty years in the fashion business is nothing short of incredible which is why we were delighted to hear that one of our favourite shops, Anthropologie, is making a big fuss over the designer.
On top of stocking her first ever retrospective book, entitled Anna Sui, select stores will exclusively carry three runway looks from the archives that epitomise the cool and quirky spirit of the designer.
The shadow vine border print dress (pictured) was worn by model Karen Elson on the runway as part of the autumn/winter 2005 collection and retails for £398. Meanwhile, the adorably cheeky trompe l’oeil dress, from the spring 2001 collection, retails for £348 and the asymmetrical woodcut border dress, also modelled by Elson, is from the spring 2007 line-up and will sell for £318.
To get your hands on a little piece of fashion history for an excellent price, visit Anthropologie shops and the online store (www.anthropologie.co.uk) in November.
