Roland Mouret’s Galaxy Dress

The designer is famed for his Galaxy dress and has also created dresses with the frilly tummy panel. Now peplums are one of the hottest seasonal trends, Roland hopes women will give them a go.

“A peplum tricks the eye. It is a modern way for a woman to disguise a part of the body she might not love. For someone that doesn’t have a lot of hip, it gives you a bit more of that attitude and some someone who’s got a little stomach, it hides the situation,” he told the latest edition of UK magazine Elle.

Mary Katrantzou is also a fan of the style. She has given some tips on how women can wear this most stylish of items.

“There’s something very elegant and classic in the proportions it defines. The peplum has an almost haute couture appeal,” she said.

“Keep the top part of a dress simple and waisted so the focus is on the silhouette it creates.”
