A woman’s closet is not complete without a go-to cocktail dress or statement evening gown. Every girl needs something cute to wear to a semi-formal event or something fancy for a formal invite where she can be dazzling. For the affairs where cocktail attire has been requested, a short or tea-length party dress will be just perfect. And sometimes, an invite will indicate a black-tie function, meaning you cannot leave your maxi formal evening gown in the closet and really need to dress to impress.
Our designers presented a new 2022 evening fashion collection that features many cocktail & party dresses and more options of formal evening gowns. The latest fashion line is called ‘Galatea,’ taking its name after a beautiful creation of the sculptor – Pygmalion. In ancient Greek mythology, he fell in love with Galatea, which then came to life by the magic act of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. He admired Galatea and dressed in the most exquisite outfits. Papilio’s designers presented dress styles inspired by this Greek myth. The photoshoot expanded on this theme, using a pure white background, high columns and antique statues.
Browsing this collection, you will notice many romantic styles, with puff sleeves, gentle ruffles, soft lace, and dreamy florals. One of the biggest fashion trends is cocktail dresses and evening gowns with statement sleeves, including short and flouncy, fluttery, bell, and balloon sleeves. The designers also offer beautiful fabrics and a wide variety of colours. Jacquard and satin cocktail dresses are looking extra luxe, and we have them in all forms, from cute minis to classy midis. Light chiffon, delicate tulle, luxurious satin and glistening taffeta perfectly blend with exquisite lace and sparkling sequins. The stylistic images are very trendy and complement a feminine figure with soft and flowing fabrics. All cocktail dresses and evening gowns are decorated with Papilio’s signature embroideries that make each of these designs unique and highlight the brand’s personality.
