I met Sarah Lorkovic, from Bravo Salon, many months ago during our Pasadena Magazine Photo Shoot when she modeled one of my gowns for their real weddings section. As you look through the Collection pages of our website, you can find her modeling some of my gowns! But, at the time of the Shoot, she still had not purchased her wedding gown , so after talking, Sarah made an appointment to see me. She already had something very specific in mind for her dress, she wanted a crochet and lace gown that she had seen photos of in a wedding magazine. I took her initial concept and decided to run with it, making it more of a modern, fitted piece to compliment Sarah's beauty and figure. So, as crazy as it sounded, I decided instead of purchasing the lace, we would actually create our own here at the Salon.
After fitting Sarah in a muslin gown, we pulled apart the patterns and hand stitched strips of ribbon together to create her entire gown out of our own battenburg lace. We also applied lace appliques to add to the beauty, creating a gown that was elegant, light and perfect for her Palm Springs wedding!
When we were complete, it fit Sarah like a glove and she looked stunning!
I will have wedding photos coming soon as well...
