Well of course it did!
The Roland Mouret for Gap collection of dresses, which included belted shirtdresses; CourrÃ©ges-inspired numbers and tunics with bib fronts or ruffled V necks in charcoal, silver-gray, navy, black and red, with prices from Â£45 to Â£78 were bound to fly out the door.
The question wasn’t “so what do the dresses look like”, it was more like “how many can I grab?”. And with pretty names like racey, Nicola, Jessie, Simi, Richie, Hayley, Torya, Fiona, Cristina and Tasha, why wouldnâ€™t you want one of the dresses designed by th eman who helped bring back ‘the dress’, with the iconic Galaxy dress to his name, Roland Mouret sure knows when he’s on to a good thing.
So of course women lined up all morning on the cold streets of UK, Ireland and France to get one.
And as a side thought, part of the proceeds from the dress sales go to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, why wouldn’t you want to get down to a GAP store in the UK, Ireland and France to pick one up now? Well… if they had any dresses left.
