The Idea and Inspiration:
Carolyn contacted me wanting a modern strapless wedding dress with a strong art deco influence. She had a clear idea of what she wanted, and provided a detailed design sketch and some inspiration images. From these we worked together to create the perfect strapless, sweetheart necklined, slim mermaid style dress with an ostrich feather trimmed train, lots of curved construction lines, and lots and lots of sparkles.
Fabric and Materials:
Silk-cotton with a delustred satin finish fully backed in cotton, and trimmed with metal and gel sequins, seed pearls, ostrich feathers, and a vintage belt buckle
The Dress Diary:
Pogey bait: belt buckles and beads and sequins
The finished dress in my workshop
The finished dress:
Oh OH OH! That is soooo very beautiful! What a lucky bride!
This dress is fabulous! Great work. She must have felt wonderful in this.
I’m still so amazed by this dress!! So fabulous! And detailed…
Thank you! I’m quite pleased with it myself, and Carolyn was such a joy to work with (and looked fabulous in it).
