Alterations Before and After

The number of comments that my alteration 'before and after' pics generate just goes to show how beneficial it is for brides to see how alterations take place in real time, on real brides.
This dress is the LM 2839B LM by Lusan Mandongus. It has a straight cut skirt lining topped with an A-line lace overlay, which simultaneously creates a sleek hourglass shape with a soft 'flowy' touch. The bride was specifically looking for a dress with a high neckline and a low cut back.
Being a shorter bride with a typical apple shape, the detail at the satin pleated waist band worked well to accentuate her waistline and soften the fall across her hips. Being a winter wedding, the bride preferred sleeves, so I ordered extra lace and added 3/4 sleeves.
To provide bust support, I removed the back fastening of her bra and sewed the cups and side structures into the dress.

3/4 lace sleeve LM by Lusan Mandongus

3/4 lace sleeve LM by Lusan Mandongus

Dress of the Week.This is a 3/4 lace sleeve LM by Lusan Mandongus in a size 12. The dress fits this bride beautifully, and only requires lifting at the shoulders to correct a too-long bodice. It has a stunning low back and train. I like to take photographs when a dress fits well - that way I can show the bride how she looks in the dress compared to how the dress fits the model - in this case we can see that she looks as equally gorgeous as the size 6 model! This is often the case…bridal fashion is one area of design where women needn’t be model thin to look wonderful. I am the only stockist for Lusan Mandongus in NSW, come in and take a look at the beautiful dresses.

COWL NECKLINE

COWL NECKLINE

Employed for both the front and back of the wedding gown, cowls have been seen quite  a resurgence recently. Whether high or low, the draping creates beautifully soft looks, to your wedding dress, which give a nod to old Hollywood flair. For the wedding season aead the effect has been used across both bridal and bridesmaids gowns for a sexy impact without revealing too much . 

Thin women have challenges

Thin women have challenges

Every woman's body can be matched with a dress to flatter and accentuate their best features. It's an automatic assumption that thin women don't have any challenges in finding a dress that does just that, but they also need to be selective with what they choose. 

This particular bride is a size 2 with little curve in her slender long body.

Petite Bride

Petite Bride

Great style for the petite or flat chested bride . There is nothing wrong with having a small chest. It is how you choose your wedding dress to suit. A small bust can be both beautiful and sexy. This dress is perfect. The low V front neckline with ruching over the bust is perfect for the flat chested bride to be. The lace detail on the side makes your waist look smaller. The simplicity and classiness of this dress also works well for that petite bride.

Lace long sleeve wedding dress

Lace long sleeve wedding dress

Hi ,A bride came into my boutique a month ago looking for lace long sleeve wedding dress. I didn't have much in a long sleeve there are a couple of dresses I can buy extra fabric and attach a sleeve to . 
I said to my bride " try this Lusan Mandongus lace dress I know his has made it in a long sleeve with the Sabrina neckline you are looking for".My bride love the lace and with my help explaining how it would look like with a different neckline and sleeves, she and ordered the dress . I was grateful that she believed in my knowledge and also helps that her mum is a seamstress that could understand what I was explaining. 
When I was in Milan I saw her dress and was so excited I asked the model to try it on. I emailed my bride the photos and she's just loved her dress even more . 
When I did made to measure a bride never got to see her dress till it was almost finished. I find ready to wear easier as they can see the dress on them and I can explain the changes to the dress.

Lusan Mandongus Fashion Show

Hi Brides to be,The highlights of my trip to Milan was meeting the designers. Lusan Mandongus was no exception . I had front row seats to his 2015 Si SposaItalia fashion show. I'm sitting waiting for the show thinking to myself I cannot believe this is happening so exciting. What a great collection for 2015 . After the show I was able to see the gowns on the rack or on the model. The laces and beading are couture quality and design.  I'm looking forward to my new bridal collection coming in the next few months. The advantages of seeing the collection live  is also that  if I don't have it in my boutique I am able to explain to my brides how the  gowns look , fit and quality.
