'Ariene,' an elegantly dramatic pale ivory full length wedding dress in finest-quality embellished silver-corded lace over pale oyster luxury double-weight 100% silk satin.
The close fitting boned silk under-bodice has a sweetheart neckline and is overlaid with a lace layer, which has a slash neckline sitting wide on the shoulders .There are full length lace fitted sleeves with slightly flared cuffs.
The lace is embellished with silver cording and irridescent sequins and opalescent beads that give a subtle sparkle. A trail of ivory and silver embroidered beaded flowers are appliqued through the bodice to the hip.
The bodice extends into a figure skimming full length skirt, with the lace extending into a puddle train at the back.....
The dress closes at the centre back with a row of little silk covered highball buttons and rouleau loops, and is fully lined in silk satin.
This is a really beautiful elegant design, and a future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot, but it is in excellent freshly cleaned condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from a minor smudge or two on the lining, and possible a loose bead or two (these really do not affect the gorgeousness of the gown). This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the standard UK size 8 mannequin on which the dress is shown, with any excess room indicated.
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before completing checkout.
