About My Dress
My own design
Cream Zin Linen, Cream Voile, Vintage French Chantilly Lace
Time To Create:
Dress Influenced By:
Zimmermann’s ‘Halcyon Days' Collection. Young, fresh, feminine, flirty perfect for our hot hot Queensland summers. This design was created after the fabric arrived from Tessuti, realising my original design was not going to enhance the colour of the beautiful linen which I was only able to view and purchase on line. A bias cut was going to give the most movement for this summer inspired dress.
The Vintage French Chantilly Lace comes from my wedding dress which I designed and made 30 years ago. The dress was evolved around the lace and it's previous use in the design of my wedding dress. The back asymmetrical design came about by using the lace scallop from the original deep V neckline. To keep the cool feeling I have fully lined the dress with cotton voile. A special thanks to Lauren my gorgeous model and Rhianna for the fabulous photographs.
