So many mesh pieces look the same from designer to designer. I know this is because the whole of mesh is new and people are experiencing a learning curve. The same was true when flexible prims came out and other changes that have animated our SL-life.
Every now and then, someone surprises me with a fresh look to the mesh, and in this case, the long sleek gowns from Miss Darcy's submission to the Hope for Emilia project did just that. These gowns are elegant, long lines that draw the eye, smooth silky texture, and patterning that just oozes sophistication and beauty. I found one of my new most favorite dresses in the rose colored option.
