Wedding gown

Creation of a wedding gown influenced by the fantastic Spring 2007 Christian Dior Couture collection by John Galliano. The train is composed of 30 meters of silk organza, cut out in more than 300 meters of bias, all hand-rounded with an iron. The optical white tulle and silk duchess satin corset are followed by successive layers of white, off-white and beige flounces to create a dégradé effect. The volutes are maintained by a crinoline structure underneath, secured with grosgrain binding.

The gown needed over 400 hours of work.
