| Pre-Raphaelite/Medieval Couture Bridal Gowns
An order based closely on the original "Raffaella" gown; a figure-enhancing two-piece gown, shown in a navy and soft gold brocade.
The medieval-styled bridal gown is lightly corseted with back lacing. Inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite paintings of John William Waterhouse, this alternative wedding dress has fitted ruched chiffon undersleeves with button detailing
at the wrist. These are revealed beneath classic trumpet-shaped 'medieval' sleeves. The flat-fronted A-line skirt with a volume of fabric gathered into the
back flatters both the slimmest and more shapely brides. Piped contrasts and sleeve linings were in navy silk satin.
To order: The "Raffaella" design is £2100 to construct.|
Your choice of fabric from our vast range will add from between £150 to £500,
depending on type - silk dupion, damask, brocade etc
|This design can be varied and individualised|
to each made-to-measure order.
