These are the first wedding gowns I designed. They were made locally with eco-friendly and sustainable fabrics. I designed a few of them to be more versatile by having a detachable lower skirt... perhaps wear it long for the ceremony and short for the reception?
I remember sculpting the branch on this gown with little tucks of the organic cotton fabric. I worked all night until the gown was complete. The sash is made of a silky bamboo/tencel.
The Alyssa gown, below, is made of a hemp/silk blend floral jacquard.
The Brigette, below, is a hemp/silk blend crepe with a peace silk sash.
The gown, Anne, below, is made of two contrasting fabrics, both hemp/silk blends. The lower skirt was detachable.
Kayla, the gown below, has a detachable lower skirt. The bodice is made of hemp/silk blend floral jacquard and the skirt is peace silk.
This is a halter gown I made, and I found a light blue tulle underskirt at a vintage shop, and I layered them.
This little pixie dress (much shorter on this tall model than on the average bride!) is made of a striped silk. I sculpted the bustle on the back into voluminous but delicate folded layers. I loved how the stripes overlapped beautifully.
