REDESIGN : BELLA'S STORY
1. DESIGN CONSULTATION
Bella had bought a Provonias Altier gown. Although she loved the detailing on the skirt, she felt the bodice didn't quite suit the vision for her gown.
During her first consultation we tried on her original gown and discussed the changes required to create her perfect dress.
Deciding to remove the original bodice we set upon creating her a brand new design.

After removing the original bodice we created a cotton mock up for her to try on, to help us perfect the fit and the style before making it up in the final fabrics!
We also made alterations to her skirt to make sure everything fitted perfectly!
2. SKETCH AND SAMPLING
We came up with various sketched designs and using a combination of lace from her original bodice and sourced fabrics managed to find the perfect match for her skirt.
Sourcing beautiful 3D floral appliqués which we used on her shoulders waist and veil.
Once Bella had confirmed that the fit, style and fabrics were perfect we made up her final bodice.
