Any luxury designer who does a diffusion line gets the thumbs up from us here at Cheapnchic.net. Ben De Lisi was one of the first, pioneering his Principles by Ben De Lisi line before any other designers at Debenhams.
If you don’t already know Ben, this is the dress which he designed for Kate Winslet at the 2002 Oscars. It still ranks as 5th on Vogue’s list of the the Best Oscars Dresses Ever.
I had the pleasure of hosting In Conversation with Ben De Lisi last week as he visited Debenhams in Mall of the Emirates. His homewear line is so similar to my bedroom aesthetic it’s ridiculous! He was so lovely and charismatic.
