Whitney Houston couture dress by Marc Bouwer at the 2009 MTV VMA's!!

In 2007, Whitney Houston was forced to auction around 300 garments from her storage to help pay off her debts. We recently acquired this fun Marc Bouwer sequin couture dress from the auction. AMT customer, model and DJ, TygerLilly rocked the dress for this months MTV Video Music Awards at New York's Radio City Music Hall, check it out!!

Marc Bouwer, a recent guest judge on one of our favorite shows, Project Runway designed this fun, flirty, sequined party dress for Whitney herself back in the early 90's.

Moving to NYC from his native South Africa, he worked for fashion legend, Halston before starting his own couture fashion label in 1990. A favorite designer of Whitney (he designed her wedding gown), Bouwer has also designed for such notables as Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Charlize Theron, Paris Hilton, Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker and many many more!

To top it all off.... Bouwer is a PETA Humanitarian Award winner and made history when he presented a collection completely free of animal products in 2002 famously remarking "fur belongs on an animal, not on a hanger".
