Maria's gown. Maria is an artist and loves a vintage look. She especially loves the 1910's, 20's, 30's. This influenced our design and we had to achieve a vintage look. We use the champagne silk and modal fabric. The silk of the dress was our 'first love' skirt with sculptured draping and our signature 'first love' loops, for a bit of fun. We used a beaded retro motif to embellish her bodice. Pleated sleeves added continuity to her draping skin and we knew we had to emphasise her slender waist with a champagne belt. She looked beautiful and happy.
