I "salute" brides whose vision is to be different without sacrificing unique style. Michelle is one of them. She's the sister of Tricia who was my previous client. I made Tricia's colorful debutante's gown, and some cocktail dresses for their stunning mother. ;-) More than the excitement of doing another gown for their family, I was completely happy because I knew that it's gonna be a collaboration between an artist and a fashion designer. True enough, we made it! We were both happy with the outcome! ;-)

Michelle's wedding gown is made of different layers of electric pleated silk organza skirt, an architectural draped bodice, and a structured oversize bow adorned with crystal brooches. She matched her gown with a simple short veil.

For her lovely entourage, I designed dresses with random draping techniques cinched with pleated silk satin waistbands. One major detail I love the most was the digital prints on their dresses. These are precious paintings of the bride, she wanted each dress to be memorable. Her "vow" was the print on Tricia's (Maid of Honor) dress. The feathered earrings are just perfect! Isn't it cool?!

My advice to future brides: be open to new ideas. Open your eyes. Be creative and have fun! Weddings are special occasions to be remembered forever. All you need to do is hire experienced wedding suppliers that you are comfortable to work with, and they will transform your dream wedding to a reality. And don't forget to simply have fun! ;-)
