I was comission to design and made a dress for this georgeos young woman specting a baby!!! She needed a special dress for a special party…..and also to be very confortable in her wonderfull special stage. Looking at books by chance, I found this picture of a Dior`collection in the 50`s and I could see my client right inside……of course my head plays tricks to me….so I saw her with gold and a bit of gliter since as you can see, she is beautifull and…. radiant!!! and I added the gold strap with swarovski crystals, and then…the round shawl with the same crystals all over, and at the end of each side I put this heavy crystal pieces that I put together for this…………Well, I really love this dress, I love the 50`s that mark the siluete in such way, and I love the way that it looks on my beautifull client. So….what do you think???

Material Notes

Dress in 100% silk chiffon, lining in 100% silk charmeusse and habotai, chawl in 100% silk organza. Heavy gold trim finish with swarovski cristals.

      jajaja!! no my darling, actually, the Maria Antonieta wedding dress was made about 2 years ago……the ocean waves with hand dyed shawl…..about 3 weeks ago, and that one was very simple, only the dyeing was labor intense…..this one for the mother to be, also was finished 2 weeks ago, and the one with catherine hepburn in mind…..just finished last night!!!! yes I work a lot, and at night time also, because this is my work but……my passion too, and allways am in a hurry to see the end result. I am glad that you like this one……really the picture is not fair, because this dress is……just a dream!!! really.
