PPR Unconventional Wedding Dress – House of Cornish

We were supposed to make an unconventional wedding dress, with the burlesque dancer for inspiration.

I will just stand on the runway and defend the concept of this dress.

It is meant for a beach side wedding. It is a lovely light moss green, so the color is light and the fabric is light. The dress is modern, but the veil is traditional and long.

The bride’s daughter drew a design and that was transferred to the veil. (oh, yes, a wink to the headlines.)
The front has a gather at the top and then silk cording defines an Empire waist. The back dips and the top half is bare, while the bottom comes out in a little bit of a bustle.

The sheer chiffon is in contrast to the volume of the bustle and our “old” notion of the structure and layers that a bustle takes.

Tim fainted. Nina said it was a hot mess. The client LOVED it. Zack was apoplectic. I am allowed to stay because the judges think they want to see more. (like Sandya) But I am barely safe. That’s okay. I’ll take it.

    • I love your Angelina Jolie train! And I think the dress is light and airy and has a lot of charm to it. You’re definitely safe this week. 😉
