The Birmingham-based company behind what has become known as 'the dress' said its viral fame has caused it to sell out.

Ian Johnson, creative manager for Birmingham-based Roman Originals, said the dress sold out from the website within half an hour this morning.

Johnson they have been overwhelmed with demand for the black and blue dress, and have also been inundated with calls from people who want a white and gold version.

We're vastly over where we'd be normally.

Our website's currently at about a million visits to this page alone. It is back in stock now, and we are looking pretty good into the weekend.

Our head designer, Michelle Bastok is discussing the possibility of the white and gold version, and we are hoping to get that made soon.

Michele Bastock from fashion company 'Roman' is based in Erdington in Birmingham.

She was wearing the dress and settled the argument once and for all, by stating it was blue and black!

It's royal blue with a black lace, that is what we photographed in the publicity shots.

That's what the lady (who tweeted the image) purchased.

Everyone just sees it differently I guess!"
