The Future of Chainmail Fashion

Leading the way through Inovation

We are proud to announce our invention, which has been awarded patent pending 62/897,779 by the patent office.

Our clients can enjoy the benefits of this revolutionary innovation that allows the lower back of the dress to be lowered and raised to suit any occasion.

It also eliminates the need for cumbersome zippers and fasteners, which detract and disrupt the clean, fluid style lines, making it easy to step in and out of the dress.

black chainmail dress, by Runway Icons: contructed  from Whiting and Davis chainmail,  the recognized leader in metal mesh fabrics for over 120 years. The dress features elastiiced chainmail straps, which can be adjusted as well.

Superior fit and quality

With over 25 years specializing in chainmail design and construction, We have the knowledge and expertise to construct the highest quality garments made of this one of a kind mercurial metal fabric.

For a superior fit, we offer adjustable elasticized chainmail shoulder straps, which are extremely complex and labor intensive to produce, they allow the dress to flex and travel with the natural movements of the body.

The neckline can be re-positioned by adjusting the shoulder straps.

Imitation chainmail vs. Authentic Whiting and Davis chainmail

The gold dress (above right) is made of aluminum chainmail, which is fragile and prone to tears under stress.  The uneven texture of the chainmail undermines the drape and fit of the garment. This chainmail has a tendency to buckle and pull away from the body. High quality fit begins with high quality materials and craftsmanship.  The stainless steel dress (above left), which is made from Whiting and Davis chainmail, is a true testament to uncompromising standards, it clings to the body and creates a sleek silhouette.  Even though the dress has gather details, it does not add undesirable bulkiness.

A league above the rest

We design and create chainmail mesh apparel that's crafted from the highest quality materials produced by world renowned Whiting and Davis, the recognized leader in chainmail fabrics for over 120 years. Many online retailers offer similar dresses at prices ranging from $30-$299. They are able to offer bargain prices because their dresses are not made of Whiting and Davis chainmail, instead they are made of aluminum mesh, an inexpensive material that is fragile, tears under stress, and hangs like a gunnysack. Our dresses are made of premium carbon steel and brass chainmail which drape and mold to the body like liquid metal. We offer 18k gold and sterling silver electroplate on the brass metal mesh. We accept special order requests and offer alterations to assure a perfect fit
