Erin came to me with one single inspirational image, just one... she knew what she wanted and what she wanted was something extraordinarily beautiful and unique.
Not everyone knows what they want or what would look best on them... Erin, partly because she is an amazing costume designer and chooses outfits for others, had a very clear idea of the silhouette she wanted.
The original picture was a haute-couture gown straight from the runway, an edgy little number not quite suited for walking down the aisle.
We reimagined and redesigned the gown together, rounding as few angles as possible as we worked our way around to creating a dress that would meet some seemingly contradictory criteria: being a flatteringly edgy yet properly elegant wedding dress.
