Homage to Dita Von Tees’ Wedding Dress

Recently I made the Bird of Paradise dress as a sample for the Westwood couture label.(Took me a week!) Absolutely amazing dress! A corset based cleavage enhancing flowing gown in a fuchsia pink duchess with black random print.
This design HAD inspired me to make my shot taffeta ‘Scarlett’ dress a few years ago.It is similar in silhouette because it goes in at the waist and has a full skirt but it’s actually completely different in design and method of finish.
Many people have flattered me and compared my design to Dress Dita Von Tees’ wedding dress, a regal purple and blue changant taffeta beauty; the price of a luxury Jag!

However; I can still boast the fact that I made the original corset base for the first fitting of her dress.

Unfortunately I went into labour and I could not finish the project!

Daringly different wedding dress

Post update.
Now Chloe Jasmine is doing so well on the XFactor I can not resist bragging about this powerful image that ArtHakker captured of her modeling my ‘Scarlett’ dress at the Miss Aneila photo experience.
