Ethereal and understated beauty for your wedding day.
Our Monsoon brand new with tags wedding dress, originally worth £300, is light and graceful with delicate lace as the outer layer and two layers of lining underneath. The trim around the cowl neck line, back and front, is 100% silk, with a varied length falling over the shoulders giving a light, feminine touch to the dress, and would cover your shoulders for a more demure look. The lengths of the trim are a-symmetric giving the dress a subtle modern twist.
The beaded empire line waistline allows the dress to lightly hug the figure under the bust and at the waist to then fall gracefully to the floor, complimenting your shape whilst still keeping the ethereal feel to dress. The zip is discreet and down the left hand side, closing under the arm, which could be why the left hand trim is slightly shorter. The front of the dress is 5 inches shorter than the back, to give a small and subtle train.
The neckline is higher at the front compared to the back for a classic look. From the nape of the neck, the back neckline starts at 12 inches down, whereas the front of the neckline starts at 8 inches from the centre of the collar bone.
The embroidery that adorns the lace seems to be following the pattern of the lace, picking out particular flowers and clusters of the lace. The embellishment is gold thread to outline, and silver sequins and round silver beads in the centre of each section. This detailing is hand finished and there are a few spare beads and sequins attached to the care label.
Dry clean recommend before wearing - there is a slight dusting of foundation on the lining inside the neckline at the front, but this should come out or at least fade with cleaning. We also recommend that the spare beads are removed before cleaning.
