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 half 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 own gold and lilac shot taffeta (Pewter) coloured 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!
