'Calliope'; a romantic rose pink coloured full length wedding or evening dress in finest-quality 100% silk tulle and silk satin. It would be ideal for a destination, rural or beach wedding.
The close fitting integral 100% silk satin under layer has a structured bodice with padded bust cups and a sweetheart neckline. The over layer is a double layer of gossamer-soft very finely pleated and draped 100% silk tulle, which moves and flows in a beautifully fluid way.
The dress closes at the centre back with little silk covered buttons and rouleau loops, and is fully lined in silk (so 4 layers in total.
This is a very beautiful elegant design, and a real 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 condition, with just a minor smudge or two towards the hem of the under layer (so not visible at all when worn). 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. Please be aware that there may be import tax payable at point of entry according to local tax laws.
