This Alexander Wang dress comes to us courtesy of Ariel, who posted it on the fanpage and wrote:
Maybe it’s cheaper to manufacture three-quarters of a dress. This is a recession after all.
Oh, there are so many reasons this dress would have been economical to manufacture. Working without a pattern will definitely cut costs. As is just reselling the “irregular” dresses at a discount store. Or it could be that Alexander Wang hired Mrs. William’s 6th period Home Ec class to work in the factory. Hey, it’s only a sweatshop if they don’t get school credit, right?
Actually, that would explain why his fall line is entirely devoted to clothes for flour sack babies.
