I love winter weddings, its a great time to use other textures and to use luxurious fabrics and colour.
Here I have designed a gown using a navy blue silk velvet.It has a fitted bodice with long sleeves and a huge blue velvet bow and tails falling down the back of a full skirted gown in Ivory silk taffeta. This gown looks amazing with a full and long train.
For me the neckline is perhaps one of the most elegant styles, a fichu neckline taken from the 1950's. It frames the neck and shoulders, which cleverly elongates the neck. For winter it looks gorgeous and very sophisticated. Finished off with tiny ivory covered buttons down the back. Wow!
