Sweet, gentle Chiara, with her passion for tea and her delicate, detail-oriented taste. It was a pleasure to work with her, combining my inventive with her vision. We worked together over the course of months, and the resulting dress suited her in every possible way.
The starting point was the Tilia gown. Its rustic handwoven Hemp bodice and it soft, flowy but not overwhelming skirt were an easy win. The harder part was choosing the lace for her top, which was based on the Heather design. After a lot of thought, this delicate leafy french lace called Dimitra won her over. It’s resemblance with her beloved tea sprigs had the better over more classic floral options.
She finished at the waist with a thin hemp belt, the same design of the Nettle but with a change of fabric and width, which clasps at the bow in the back. At the very last minute, the base later of Tilia was changed from Ivory to Blush, it’s faded seashell notes bringing on an even more marked note of Provence aromas.
As a bridal cover up, for in April, in the Marittime Alps it cen be quite chilly, she had me make a lovley crepe wool cape, embroidered with the small lace leaves cut out from the leftover cuts from making her top.
this time I’m not writing to get news on the dress, but to share some images from one of the most beautiful days of my life. I remember when a year ago I would wait for the quiet of Saturday mornings to wake up at dawn and free my imagination to plan that dream wedding, simple but full of important details for me. The dress was also a part of the success of the big day and it represents me in every single layer. It was a real fortune to meet you! Being able to wear a unique green dress made me one proud bride and undoubtedly at ease.
All the best,
