Pre-Raphaelite/Medieval Couture Bridal Gowns "Raffaella"

design for forest green medieval style wedding dress with hanging sleeves and contrasting embroidered panels green and silver brocade medieval style wedding dress with tailored hanging sleeves

A figure-enhancing two-piece gown, shown in a stunning green and silver silk damask - lightly corseted with back lacing. Inspired by the paintings of John William Waterhouse, this Pre-Raphaelite-style 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. Contrasting piped detailing (here in black satin ) can be used to emphasise the sleeve and neckline edges.

It is possible to construct this gown in many fabrics, patterned and plain - duchesse satin, brocade, damask, dupion, velvet, zibilene, etc. The design can be kept streamlined and tailored, or embellished at the neckline, waistline or cuffs.

To order: The "Raffaella" design is £2200 in plain silk dupion - for other fabrics,
such as brocades and damasks, the price will be higher. Please enquire.
