More than a thousand designer dresses have been stolen from a lorry in Gravesend.

Police are appealing after distinctly patterned Oliver Bonas dresses were stolen overnight between 10pm on Wednesday January 17 and 5am on Thursday, January 18.

Around 1,400 identical dresses were reported stolen from the lorry while it was parked in an Asda car park in Imperial Retail Park in Thames Way, Gravesend.

The knee length dress is a one off design to be sold by the company Oliver Bonas and is described as navy in colour with a ‘dobby’ print.

The print is characterised by a small pattern and extra texture in the material. The pattern is white and grey.

There is a tied sash belt around the dress which is in the same material and pattern as the dress. To secure the dress at the back there are three small buttons in the middle and two more buttons at the top.

The dresses come in size six to 18 and the product code is 011558670 which can be found in the car label and swing ticket.

Anyone with information about the theft or who believes they have information about the location of the dresses is asked to contact Kent Police on 01474 366 149 quoting crime reference number XY/003303/18.
