Silk Wedding Dress, Spring 2013. Front view. The bride loved green, so I got the fun opportunity to add colour to a traditional garment. The inspiration was very organic, somewhat Shakespearean, and very Elvish. The neckline is cut like a Tudor neck, squared and widening over the front. The modesty piece was a fun element to add, it both satisfied my inner history nerd, and provided a nice opportunity to add more green and beading. It is mostly 18th century, but I have been in love with the idea and it always seemed very romantic, discreet, and ultimately alluring. I thought a wedding dress should be something like that, both chaste and beguiling. And altogether magical. It was such a joy to see it come to completion on my Model Form, and then on the beautiful bride. It looked exactly how I first imagined it when the bride and I discussed her ideas and preferences. It was a beautiful event and my honour to be part of it. The dress was fun to make and very fun to see in action.
