Destination weddings are a favourite of mine. Having an excuse to go somewhere new with family and friends then spending all the time together relaxing and drinking. I made two dresses for this wedding. One for pre wedding cocktails the evening before and one for the wedding.
The cocktail dress was a backless bias cut slip in raw silk detailed with vintage Kimono fabric. The red in the fabric highlighted with the authentic Japanese flower in her hair. Jewelled silver flat salads finished the outfit for a relaxing evening on the lawn.
The wedding dress was a simple strapless panel dress with a full hem. The inside boned and closed with lacing to give a great fit, the outside layer of the dress closed over the lacing with covered buttons. The real star of this outfit is the hair piece made by Melbourne Milliner Richard Nylon. Its base made in the same silk as the dress and it’s colours matching the minty/blue of the lovely little snake skin pumps.
