Cher’s white dress from Clueless movie is being brought back by Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa. This all is happen due to a request from Ilaria Urbinati, co-owner of the LA-based label Confederacy, according to Vogue UK reports. Urbinati said to Daily Front Row, “I went into a spazzy explanation of how my formative-years love of Calvin was partly based on the little white Calvin mini dress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless,” and “I re-enacted the entire scene for him (you know, ‘Cher, what are you wearing?’ ‘A dress!’ ‘Says who?’ ‘Calvin Klein!’ ‘Well, go put something over it!’ ‘Duh, I was just going to!’ and then she comes out with the clear trench). So of course I said, Francisco, you need to remake that dress.” Now, the dress is available in two colors, white and red on Confederacy’s website, shopconfederacy.com for the price of $916. You can place order by calling the store at (323) 913-3040.

Urbinati said, “If the mere sight of those lines, lifted from the film that defined my love of fashion better than any other ever has–1995’s Clueless–makes your heart go pitter patter, then you’re about to hear some very exciting news, indeed.” Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa has just re-created dress (which Cher’s father, Mel, said “looks like underwear”) and is now available at the Los Angeles boutique Confederacy.

Store owner Ilaria Urbinati was introduced to Costa, gushed about the scene, and begged him to recreate the iconic dress, ‘It was love at first sight,’” said Urbinati of the meeting. ‘I sort of geeked/fan-ed out on him and went into a spazzy explanation of how my formative-years love of Calvin was partly based on the little white Calvin mini dress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless! I re-enacted the entire scene for him (you know, “Cher, what are you wearing?” “A dress!” “Says who?” “Calvin Klein!” “Well, go put something over it!” “Duh, I was just going to!” and then she comes out with the clear trench). So of course I said, Francisco, you need to remake that dress.’ And after watching that scene on YouTube, Costa complied. The original pattern was procured from the warehouse in Italy, and at last, the legendary white dress is hitting the sales floor.” according to the Daily Front Row.
