San Patrick - Ebano dress

Sunday, May 23, 2010
Here is another stunning client's gown that I want to share with you all! This beautiful Ebano gown is by San Patrick. I love how the beading detail under the bust is continued along the straps creating really fluid lines. This design seems to combine structure and floatiness - a modern take on the Grecian style. It is such a romantic gown.

The wearer of the dress, (who shall remain nameless for now!)was looking for some jewellery and hair accessory options. She has the most amazing head of curls and wants to wear her hair up in a soft Pride and Prejudice style.

As it happens I had made the jewellery and accessories for her sister's wedding recently and the bridesmaid's pearl and rhinestone bracelet and earrings work beautifully with the dress. She had an idea for a Grecian style headpiece to complement the beading detail on the dress. The beaded rhinestone and pearl hairwire, (seen above) was the perfect choice. The delicacy of the hairwire is beautiful in soft curly hairstyles and can be woven into the hair. The beaded side feature also complements the centre detail under the bust.

I hope to be able to show you a picture from the wedding in the next month or so!
