Unique string gown by ABS Evening by Allen Schwartz. Strings in shades of brown are against a black background. The string-like construction makes for a fabulous texture and feel. The dress is secured by two long tie strings – each are 38″ – that first act as shoulder straps, then cross on the back, then run through loops at the side, and finally meet again in the center of the back where they tie to one another. There’s also a hook and a 5″ zipper on the back. The body and “contrast” are made of 100% polyester. Plenty of stretch in this gown. Fully lined. Made in the USA.

As Wall Street Journal put it, the Allen Schwartz A.B.S. label “sells lower-priced knockoffs of gowns that Hollywood stars wear on the red carpet.” Mr. Schwartz himself says he deals in “affordable luxury.” He’s been criticized for copying other designers, but leading upscale stores, including Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Lord & Taylor, carry his lines. www.absstyle.com
