The inspiration for the wedding dress started from choosing a home at random and determining what type of persona lives there by studying the overall style and interior decoration of the home.
The home I chose is located in Malibu California and is a Stunning architectural house with walls of retracting glass open to breathtaking ocean and mountain views, with a indoor outdoor feel. The interior design has aspects of art deco and Victorian elements.
The velvet sofas and coffee table have gold geometric frames that reminded me of the style and materials used in the design field during the roaring 20’s, the frames look like the façade of the empire state building, which was built at that time.
There is a warm feeling in the house that is provided by the usage of heavy materials such as velvet furniture and carpets, and natural color pallet that includes brown, beige and gold.
I used a golden brocade fabric for the dress and created rich contra-folds combined with hand bead embroidery that replaces some of the stiches in the dress. The top is made from two layers that include a corset with bones and are all hand sewn to each other.
