This is the dress I made for the Burdastyle Fashion Show that should actually take place at the DLD conference in January (but unfortunately the show was cancelled as some might know :/ )

But hey, **** happens ;)

Finally, I had the opportunity to have some pictures of it taken myself.

    Absolutely stunning dress! I saw it in a catalog the BurdaStyle team had sent me, but I have to admit that your pictures promote the dress more adequately.

    Oh my God this is so amazing! I hope that it will be in another show soon because it truly deserves to be on a runway!

    This dress has such amazing lines. It looks like it could be in any high fashion magazine.

    Wow! I’d love to create something more unusual than the things I make but I have no idea what I could use it for, so it wouldn’t leave my room (except for the photos). Great pictures, too!

    Very nice! As a photographer, I’m a sucker for black-and-white and I love these pictures. As a seamstress, I adore modern takes on victorian fashion and dark, gothic drama and romance (don’t do much of it myself though, my practical streak keeps getting in the way). So, all together I love your dress and I’m very sorry to hear that the event for which it was made was cancelled. It’s great to see your work again here on Burdastyle! What do you think, shouldn’t we have some kind of Burdastyle Europe catwalk event one of these days? ;))
