Late January I entered the Townsville Fashion Festival Avant Design Competition.
Although I have since found my entry was not a winner, creating this gown was another creative opportunity for me.
The Elizah Gown was created from a combination of Red Duchess Satin, Tulle and lace. Individual petals were created into handmade flowers and the gown featured hand embellishing and pearling. The Bodice was a illusion bodice with a high collared neckline, a zipper back and pearl buttons at the collar. The full skirt featured pockets (who does not love pockets?!) and a inbuilt tulle petticoat.
I also created the matching headpiece and additional flowers which were attached to the model's face with eyelash glue for a Avant Garde Look.
