The Process of Design: Final

It's been a while since Part 3 of the Design Process, but here is my Bride Tina, whose gown I have featured in documenting for my Design Process, in her final gorgeous gown. As you can see, the amount of fabric and detail that was put into the gown was worn beautifully and fit her like a glove.
In the final gown, all of the foundation, structure and support that I showed in the last blog, is completely hidden beneath the soft, silk pleated and ruffled overlay. The train was especially long as Tina requested a cathedral length which also included her veil. Many, many yards of fabric went into this creation, and each bit was methodically sewn and stitched to achieve the wonderful flow and feel of airiness that Tina had wanted.
Congratulations Tina & Nate!

The Ebell Photo Shoot


I was contacted recently by Heather Ham to take part in a wedding photo shoot that she was in the process of organizing and designing, featuring a variety of wedding vendors.  Heather and I have worked together before on a previous photo shoot that she put together, also featuring one of my gowns. This recent shoot took place at The Ebell Los Angeles, an amazing and historic building in our own backyard, that is often used for weddings and events.  Photgrapher Suthi Picotte of Picotte Photography, who has shot my gowns before, was on hand to capture the details.  The gown in the photos is one from my last Spring Collection, it is silk with lace details, one part modern, one part vintage, and definitely beautiful on any bride that is looking for that soft, sexy detailed gown for her groom.
