Prom Season... it starts at the end of April and goes until around June 15th. This post is extra special because it spans 7 years, I think! 3 sisters all came to me for their custom gowns... first was Lauren with her peach lace accent... then Chelsea who was pretty in pink.... and this year was Katie's turn to wow them at L'ance Cruese North!! It is such an honor to be someone's first choice years later!
Anyone who has worked with me knows my favorite thing to be turned loose with is my French lace... Andrea was planning a beautiful celebration of her daughter's First Communion. We chose a stunning French Alencon for this piece and then beaded it with pearls all around the peplum, sleeves and gorgeous collar! This business is just so much fun!!💕💕
Ms. Claudia Ezman Simons always wanted her wedding gown to be made of a fabulous lace and feature ice blue... I had the perfect silk dupioni! She had lost over 100 pounds prior to starting her amazing project and continued to lose while her gown was being created. Finally with covered buttons, a beautiful sweep train, and a couture bow, her gown fit and looked stunning!
A brides headpiece...a few issues come into play... how will she wear her hair? Does she want the headpiece seen from the front or only from the back? Is it done to match the gown or accessories? In Catherine's case, I created a French Alencon lace piece to match her gown and belt. The entire piece was lace and done without a frame on the back to keep it soft and moldable to her hair. The beading was then done in Swarovski crystals, pearls, and delicate accents of gold seed beads. Her cathedral veil was ultimately worn behind her hair. Easy to wear and gorgeous!!
For a truly special event, I love this dress! It is done in a double-face dark navy satin. The bodice has a black Alencon lace overlea from Gelmor Lace. The skirt is done with varying heights of appliqued lace that has a little feather and Swarovski crystal fun added!
