To strap or not to strap? That is the question! One thing I always keep in mind when I’m designing is that my brides like to have choices. Perfect as either a strapless dress or V-neck ball gown, Silvia is available with or without beautiful cap sleeve straps.
One of our most adored fabrics, textured organza has vertical textural impressions, almost like a moire fabric. It adds a tiny bit of sheen and complexity to a typically dull fabric. The silky champagne charmeuse underlay (also available in ivory) lets the details of the lace and textured organza take center stage on this sassy, classic ball gown.
The corded Alençon lace has prominent floral motifs surrounded by delicate petals and leaves that make for an incredible lace layout on the gown and the straps. For a special touch and a little more texture, I added two-cut clear crystal beads in a dimensional floral pattern on the bodice.
All my classic ball gown designs have a slight modern twist, so pockets on Silvia were an absolute must. Who could resist putting their hands in the pockets of this beauty and spinning through the night?
