TBT: Trash the Dress.

Photography by Del Sol

Throw back thursday! I designed this wedding dress for my cousin a few years back. She wanted a second dress to do a "trash the dress" photo shot after the ceremony in Mexico and asked me to create her one. I had to keep in mind the way the fabric would react in the water along with the silhouette and recovery of the fabric once it was underwater! It all started with concept sketches of dress ideas, then moved on to the actual pattern drafting and constructing the dress. Making this was so special and it meant the world to me to actually see her in it as well down in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, at their intimate wedding.
