Three-Peice Wedding Set
December, 2015 -- It's always so easy working with Kel. She is organized and is one of the few people who can follow my spidery bunny-trail ideas. She showed up with her glittering model, bouquet and camera in tow, worked her magic, and was back down the road by lunchtime.
The ensemble for this shoot was designed to be classy, comfortable, and practical. The sheer silk long-sleeve kimono-style overdress with horsehair finish and french seams is worn over a simple, strapless sheath made out of vintage brocade, with an inset-train in the back.
The idea is that a bride in need of a modest gown for, say, a church wedding, who also wants to be comfortable for her reception can have her cake and eat it too.
She can walk the aisle in her long-sleeved, high-necked, ensemble, and simply slip the overdress over her head as she heads to the dance floor afterwards, itch-free.
The natural waistline can be further drawn in with the addition of any belt of choice, making it easy to add a pop of color or shimmer to her special day.
The third component to this ensemble was the bridal lingerie worn under the sheath. So far I have mostly designed couture/bridal gowns, but in efforts to broaden my portfolio and strengthen my construction skills, I have been experimenting a little with swimwear and lingerie, as well as jackets and trousers. I will be applying to art school soon, and I would like to have as much diversity as possible in the different categories of fashion design.
The Bridal Lingerie:
This ensemble was shown at Portland Fashion Week in October, but I am hoping to pull some ideas from the look for my upcoming collection for Seattle Fashion Week. I hope you like it!
Thank you so much Morning Glories Floral for the beautiful bouquet!
