This dress and coordinating shrug were designed by my client.  She had very specific ideas about how the lines should fall and how the silhouette would look.  She loved lace and volume but without the bulk that gathers would demand.  So, we decided on lace shaping.  I cut the lace apart and reconfigured it into graceful curves on silk organza and on the silk dupioni.  It's a time-consuming process with a beautiful bespoke outcome. 

The veil was a gift that her grandmother brought back from Lourdes.
