Behind the Dress: Eva

Eva Gown

The cinematic inspiration behind this collection speaks to a sense of daring and drama. I have translated this inspiration in different ways throughout the collection, some more subtle than others. In creating a wedding look, I believe theatrical touches can be incorporated into the design of the dress or added through the perfect accessory. It depends on the individual style of the bride.

With Eva, the dramatic flair comes in the form of an asymmetrically tulle-feather embroidered skirt, lace bodice and the exaggerated horsehair bow at the waist. Together, these design elements make a strong statement in lightness and airiness. The mixing of many types of fabric manipulations is a design technique that is quickly becoming one of my signatures.

For the more daring of my brides, I recommend adding a press-worthy accessory. A pair of over-the-elbow black gloves – a la Audrey Hepburn – is an iconic and unforgettable style statement (with black creating a sharp contrast to the natural notes of the wedding dress).
