'Belle Epoque,' a romantic full length ballgown or alternative wedding dress in delicate tulle and silk with embroidered detailing.
The close fitting boned bodice has underwired cups and is constructed of layered French grey silk organza and silk dupion. The bodice has a top layer of fine chestnut tulle which extends over the shoulders and is embellished with ribbon embroidery in subtle tones of lavender and pink.
The skirt consists of a layer of the fine tulle over the iridescent shot silk organza, which gives a beautiful shimmering effect as it moves. There is an integral blue-grey net petticoat layer, and the dress is fully lined in 100%silk.
The dress closes at the centre back with a row of little silk covered highball buttons and rouleau loops.
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. 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 possibly a very minor smudge or two towards the hem of the under layer (very difficult to spot!). 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.
