A well-constructed strapless gown should provide excellent support with no tugging required to keep it up, no matter how much dancing you do! This strapless wedding gown has a built in bustier, constructed with spiral steel boning. The boning is infinitely flexible allowing ease of movement and the ultimate in comfort and support. Fabricated in an exquisite ivory silk doupionni, the lustrous, pearly sheen of the fabric requires little in the way of embellishment.

An elegant off the shoulder wrap of sheer silk organza ties at the back, the perfect spot for an heirloom brooch. The gown is fully underlined in silk organza, and lined with luxurious silk charmeuse. The cathedral length veil is of silk tulle.

This beautiful wedding gown actually consists of two pieces-a strapless gown with a high collared sheer cover-up. The gown, of silk duchesse satin, has a close fitting bodice and full skirt that flows gracefully into an attached train. The cover-up, a sheer embroidered silk fabric, is fastened at the back with a series of tiny buttons and loops. Silk flowers, custom made in New York, are added for extra interest at the lower back.

For the reception, the cover-up can be removed.

A twist on tradition. An exceptional ivory and gold brocade wedding coat, full length, with a hem that extends into a train. The coat has a high neckline and a single button closure at the front. (See front view in special occasion photos). Sleeves have a slight bell shape to echo the graceful lines of the coat. Under the coat is a simply elegant 4-ply silk sheath gown. A short, beaded jacket was made for the bride to wear over the gown at the reception.
 
Deep soft pleats and long attached train add to the dramatic grace of this full-skirted bridal gown. Made of a lustrous silk duchess satin, the gown has subtle tone on tone beading at the neckline for just a hint of sparkle. A long row of tiny silk-covered buttons, as well as custom made silk flowers embellish the back of the gown.
