SheFinds Solution: Oscar Knock-Offs

With paper and pencil in hand, the Faviana design team watches the major awards shows and begins sketching economical versions of red carpet fashions for gals like you and me. That’s how they can offer gowns similar to what Keira Knightley wore to the 2006 Oscar awards. As I’m typing, it’s a mere four days after the “Pride & Prejudice” star donned a burgundy mermaid-hemmed Vera Wang gown. Although it won’t be shipped to stores until mid-June, the knockoff is already on faviana.com. You’ll be able to find the dress at shops such as Exclusively You in Bloomsburg, Pa., for about $270. Zinni’s Of Philadelphia also carries Faviana. Of course, the originals fit better, are made of higher quality fabric, and have deeper, richer colors. But don’t let that deter you. As imitations go, this is a good option for the red carpet look. Find Faviana gowns at zinnis.com.
