18th Century style
Masquerade Ball

The "Baroque Frock" was designed for a Venice Carnivale ball. It has a boned corset-bodice in a pale gold brocade, based on an authentic 18th century shape, but cut with the 21st century figure in mind. The fully lined corset has gold lace and pearls to ornament the bodice, combined with chantilly lace off-the-shoulder sleeves. The entire neckline was edged with gold pearls and the corset laces at the back.

The gold and ivory metallic organza overskirt is draped in classic eighteenth century style panniers, edged in gold lace and supported on antique filigree buttons. The main skirt consists of multiple layers of ivory net and tulle.

Exact reproduction of the fabrics and embellishments shown cannot be guaranteed, but many similar alternatives are available.

This eighteenth century style Venetian Ball Gown Design can be constructed in a great
variety of colours, fabrics and embellishments for around £2100 to £2900

This design can be varied and individualised
to each made-to-measure order.
