Geri Halliwell recreates her Union Jack dress for NEXT

Submitted by on Thursday, 2 February 2012 | No Comment

We all remember when the Spice Girls were at the height of their fame, and in particular, we all remember that Union Jack dress as worn by Geri Halliwell. Back then the dress was much shorter and much more low cut and it’s been almost 15 years since the singer wore it for her 1997 Brit Awards performance, but now it’s back and better than ever after being recreated in collaboration with high street retailer, Next.

Originally the famous dress was made from a simple towel by Geri’s sister, Karen, and after it was spotted on Ginger Spice, the Union Jack was instantly back in fashion and the original sold for a staggering £41,320 at auction.

With Geri Halliwell having her own range at Next, it was the obvious choice of partner for the collaboration and the perfect year to do it, with 2012 being the year for London thanks to the Olympics. The new all-over sequin creation is a tad longer in length and features a sophisticated cowl neckline.

In a statement, the singer turned model/fashion designer said: “The Union Jack dress was my favourite stage outfit and with everything that is happening this year such as the Olympics and the Jubilee it just felt the right time to design an updated version of the dress for my range with Next.”

The redesigned dress will go on sale from March at for £199.
