So excited about this Essense of Australia Mikado gown! This lovely woman is a bridal size 24 and has a DD cup bust. She already dresses beautifully and embraces her curvaceous figure. I love the asymmetrical pleats on this bodice - they are very flattering to the waist and bust and accentuate her womanly shape while still draping gently. The fabric choice and internal structure means the bride can get away without a bra, so she can keep the spaghetti straps that make this dress so modern and sexy. The skirt has a single sewn pleat on each side, which again allows the fabric to drape gently across the tummy area. Although it’s a simple design, in this case less is definitely more as the structure and simplicity is what makes this dress perfect.
This bride bought her dress with the intention of losing weight. A new medical condition meant that things didn’t quite work out as we had both hoped. As her wedding got closer I was emailing her to see where she was at and if I could assist at all. I was getting anxious about how much time we had left, so I asked her if could purchase the satin and lace which I would need to alter her dress. At this late stage it was too late to order a bigger size.
This bride had a tropical destination wedding She didn’t want a formal wedding gown but still wanted to feel like a bride. As with most destination weddings, her dress had to be lightweight and cool, travel well without creasing too much, and suit the more casual themed wedding venue.
This bride visited the store three times before finally deciding to purchase a dress from me. She also visited a bunch of boutiques in Sydney and sent me a text on her trip home after yet another unsuccessful day dress shopping.
Hi New Brides.
Well that’s a wrap on the last Trunk Show for 2018! It was an extremely successful weekend and it was an honour to get to share it with you all. Thank you for trying on so many dresses and going out of your comfort zone with design choice - it has been immensely helpful for me to see the designs on so many body shapes, and I am thrilled to say many of you ended up purchasing dresses that you would never have otherwise tried on! Congratulations!
Hi brides, here’s another story showing my age!
