Featured classic neckline encrusted wedding gown

This dress was amazing to design and make. It has four different laces cut out into tiny little pieces and hand engineered around the body in soft nudes and ivory shades … layer upon layer. It’s like a magical garden on a dress! The whole skirt is 100% silk and is slightly transparent which brings in that sensual edge. It’s all frothy and wavy … so much fun to play with!

{Soft nude and vintage bustier wedding gown}

One of my definite favourites, and a favourite of a few! This gown features a beautifully fitted fully corseted, underwired and padded bodice in a milky nude base with soft ivory boning accents and a raw edge trim. The overlay of the soft ivory vintage lace compliments the milky nude base and the Hollywood train with scalloped edging gives it that glamorous Red Carpet feel. This gown is finished with a gorgeous vintage jeweled and embellished belt.

{Hand-dyed and sculpted mint green pants}

This look also has a magical feel to it. At first glance one would mistake this as a dress, but look again! It’s actually a soft high-waisted nude pants with hand-dyed soft tulle overlays and a beautiful transparent top with lace hand engineering. The feature of this outfit is the chorded lace and panelled strips that have been hand dyed to a beautiful sage/mint green with Swarovski crystal detailing curving around the lace. The hand covered buttons and loops at the back give it that couture feeling.

The classic ‘little black dress’

This dress has a strong classic and old school influence with a modern spin on the traditional ‘little black dress’. The elegant high neckline is encrusted with black Chantilly lace and beading. A low back flows into the soft tulle skirt that is finished with a beautiful soft velvet edging. The illusion of the short length dress under the tulle makes ones legs look FANTASIC ;)
