Ever been to a party in a not very exclusive dress and had that feeling that someone else is bound to be wearing the same thing? Or, maybe, you simply can’t afford more than one dress for the party season. Here are some smart ideas on how to ring the changes with just one number and be the belle of the ball every single time.

An early shoot by legendary Australian photographer Robyn Beeche, who would later make her name capturing the alternative scene in London in the early 1980s and who sadly died earlier this year. Beeche is largely known for her documentation of catwalk shows and Alternative Miss World events, as well as experimental portraiture, so it’s interesting to see a more conventional studio/fashion set-up from her at the beginning of her career.
