We’ve built our reputation on creating well designed beaded styles, this means we rely constantly on creativity to keep things fresh. This style centers around tapering and blending. We blend crystal bead patterns with intricate lace embroidery and integrate the bride’s skin tone
We designed the bodice with exposed boning to allow the bride’s own skin tone to highlight and blend with the crystal bead patterns. Exposed boning if done poorly makes for an unfinished look so we patterned the beading along the boning to integrate it into the design.
The bead patterns taper and flow along the illusioned area where we begin to introduce the lace embroidery
We designed an attachable satin lining to give the option of filling in the illusion sections. At the hip the bead patterns taper off to blend into the lace embroidery
The radiance of the design transitions to the shimmery lace applique where it is accented with pearls and sequins
Notice the lack of visible seam lines. We achieved this by adding two layers of netting and a high sheen organza before the oyster satin underlayer. This technique of layering helps transition and balance a heavily adorned bodice with a clean simple train
For best results, we advise having a professional seamstress or tailor take your measurements. If you measure in between sizes, we recommend ordering the size larger and tailoring the gown down for a perfect fit. Please note that most gowns will require alterations regardless of measurements.
Bust: With arms relaxing at your sides, position the tape so that it covers the widest part of your back and the fullest part of your chest.
Waist: Position the tape around the smallest part of your torso, or approximately 1-2 inches above your belly button. You can also bend side to side and position the tape where your torso creases to find your waist.
Hip: With feet together, position the tape around the fullest part of your hip and bottom.
