'Galatea'; a romantic full length wedding dress in finest-quality beaded tulle and lace and 100% silk chiffon and silk satin.
The slip-style close fitting bodice is embellished with beaded lace and little 3D flowers. The low back neckline has a silk chiffon cowl drape, and long streamers of chiffon and tulle fall from the shoulders. The back has an insert of flower embellished lace. It should be noted that this is an unstructured style, so is really best suited to the small-busted figure.
The bias-cut skirt skims the hips and flares gently into a small train, with a layer of beaded tulle with a beautiful lace scalloped border, over a layer of 100% silk satin.
It closes at the side with little silk covered buttons and rouleau loops, and is fully lined in silk.
This is a really beautiful relaxed but elegant design, and a real future heirloom piece, perfect for a beach, featival or boho style wedding.. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot or two, but it is in excellent clean condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from a minor smudge or two towards the hem of the silk lining, and possibly the odd loose bead. 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 which the dress fits perfectly .
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.
