It's high fashion Sens

The Sens have inspired a catwalk creation by haute couture designer Richard Robinson that could pass as the product of a love affair between a hockey jersey and a prom gown.

The spunky, red, strapless mini-dress is emblazoned with the Sens logo and topped with a hooped mesh skirt. It's accented with a shiny gold hoop at the skirt line. The creation is worth $4,500.

The piece de resistance is the shiny gold gladiator breast plate that invokes memories of another Robinson creation -- the $1-million skintight Italian lamb leather catsuit with a 24-karat gold breast plate and left nipple-poised 15-carat diamond worn by socialite Marlen Cowpland in 1999.

A FIRST FOR ROBINSON

The Sens dress' head-turning properties were inspired by the power of the home-town hockey team. It's also the first hockey-oriented dress created by the Ottawa designer.

"I thought it would be nice to make the connection between high fashion and hockey," says Robinson.

The red and gold combination reflects Robinson's interpretation of the Sens' strengths.

His ultimate goal is to have the players sign the dress, which would be displayed in his Sussex Dr. boutique window.

"This was the perfect occasion for me to come up with something original and show the Senators that I am a fan and supporter," says Robinson.
