My two passions are making and designing beautiful fashions and lace making, as it was made before machines took over the process.
In 2012 I combined these two talents and created a wedding gown, that took over 500 hours to complete. The gown was made with a dark ivory dupioni shantung silk and featured custom-made bobbin lace that recorded the bride and groom's love story. The lace designed for the sleeves highlighted theater masks and a theater curtain. The most stunning feature of the dress was a teardrop opening in the back bodice, that was surround by more lace symbols, hearts, flowers, wedding date, the bride and grooms initials, lucky horseshoe and four leaf clover. Please contact me if you are interested in classes or custom orders.
