'Hanami,' a romantic full length wedding dress in delicate tulle and silk with embroidered detailing.
The close fitting boned strapless bodice has underwired cups and has a layer of antique-gold French lace over the pale blush tulle and silk. There are shoulder straps in gold lace, and the bodice is embellished with appliqued embroidered boughs of pale pink cherry blossom, which extends onto the top of the skirt.
The skirt consists of two very full layers of the soft blush tulle, extending into a train, and is lined with blush 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 couple of photo-shoots, 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 thread or two on the bodice (these really do not affect the gorgeousness of the gown). I also noticed two tiny pinhead holes hidden within the folds of the tulle skirt, just a couple of mms in size, which can really only be seen on very close inspection. 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.
