This beautiful Suzanne Harward dress is feminine, timeless and flattering. It's made of Ivory Regalia lace with double-plunge neckline (front and back), a front centre split and lined with pure silk.
It was made to measure but close fit to an Australian Size 12, US Size 8 with some alterations (taken in a little up on the bodice and slightly wider at the hips) I'm 163cm tall and wore 4 inch heels. RRP $7700.
The dress features a modern white lace over a nude/bone coloured silk underlay. The front centre split makes a dramatic and sexy entrance followed by a beautiful lace train as you walk down the aisle. There is the tiniest tear in the underlay of the train which is impossible to see when worn.
The plunging V at the front & back of the dress features a very sheer, near invisible layer of fabric in between it to hold the shape (and hold you in)! The silhouette is so flattering and the dress itself is very comfortable which was an important factor when I was choosing my dress. It was a dream to wear.
There is a small button on the back seam of the dress with a loop, so you can hook the train up as you dance the night away.
Handmade in Melbourne, Australia. This dress is from her 2016 Neo Victorian collection.
The dress has been dry-cleaned in New York City. It's in excellent condition, no stains or tears.
It's a truly beautiful dress and while I'm sad to see it go, it will be lovely that someone else gets to wear this Melbourne-made creation for their big day.
