I made this dress especially for the local WW1 commemorative event.
The dress is pretty simple, what makes it different and interesting is the beading design / detail. The dress was originally made from white viscose, which I hand dyed with Dylon in dark green.
It was my intention to combine the military, stern colour and the glamour of the 20s. Think flapper dress, think Charleston.
Most of the beading on the dress is applied by hand, bead by bead and sequin by sequin apart from the string sequins.
I have used quite a few of the motifs of the 20s clothing.
Worn with: vintage gold leather shoes; In some photographs Jones Bootmaker platform shoes; hand crafted green stone silver ring. And something you cannot see: perfume I chose for this outfit is Balenciaga 10. Avenue George V.
Photographs were taken at the Watermead commemorative event. Poppies hand painted bags by LavinExclusive on easy.com; Poppy leather necklace: Maria Antonescu. Own framed photograph and clothing
