'Heron,' a romantic full length wedding dress in delicate tulle and silk with embroidered detailing.
The close fitting boned strapless bodice has underwired cups and a high waist at the front, curving down to sit on the natural waist at the back. The bodice has a layer of silver French lace over the pale grey tulle and silk. There are shoulder drapes in tulle, and optional separate little elasticated tulle puff sleeves
The skirt consists of two finely pleated layers of the soft tulle, extending into a train, and is lined with 100% silk in pale blush.
The dress closes at the centre back with a row of little silk covered highball buttons and rouleau loops to the waist, with a concealed zip closing the skirt.
The bodice is embellished with two embroidered herons and little 3D sequin and bead flowers.
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, but it is in excellent clean condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from a minor smudge or two on the lining, and possibly 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. Please be aware that there may be import tax payable at point of entry according to local tax laws.
Bust; 33" (84cms)...would fit up to a 34"
Waist; 25" (63.5cms)...there may be a little latitude in the waist (up to an inch) as the waist sits high at the front.
waist to hem (front) 47" (117cms).....this would be pretty straightforward to shorten.
