Orgami Gown

Added Sep 17, 2008

by queennicolette

Toronto, Canada






This is a gown that I created for my 2nd year design class. It consisted of over 30 meters of fabric, weighed almost 20 pounds and a ridiculous amount of love.

Material Notes

Taffeta and Organza

    Wow – thats so cool! I love the bicoloured origamiskirt and the low cut back! I agree with sarah – this would be a perfect wedding gown, but even in this colour!!!
