I must apologise as it has been a while since we've visited my Wedding Dress Wednesday shots. In light of this fact I thought a special dress should be shown. This is one of the first wedding dresses I ever made, it was part of my final exhibition when I graduated from London College of Fashion. The inspiration for its creation came from a Shakespeare sonnet centred on love and it began my own love affair with wedding dresses and all that they entail.
The style of the dress itself has a touch of the Victorian to it, what with the delicate button fastening at its centre back and subtle lace applique. However, the overall look is significantly 1920s/30s, highlighted in a bias cut panel at the front for a flattering fit.
A few modern touches - such as the wired hem and green thread that runs along it - ensures this dress remains firmly in the present. And don't miss the surprise addition of our dog, Willow, joining me in the mirror!
