Heleni + Michael

Heleni and Michael were married in a lovely chateau in their native France. I’ll admit to feeling a bit of pressure as a designer to live up to the expectations of a French woman! However, Heleni was a delightful bride with refined tastes in fashion, and not only that but her fiance came to every fitting and offered his expert fashion advice. She wanted a dress that was chic and modern, with some subtle romantic details. We chose a silk mikado to give her the tailored look she wanted, with a drop waist and keyhole back, accented with chantilly lace appliques. Heleni actually selected and ordered the lace from France herself, and why not, since that’s where the best lace is made? The high-low hemline lifted up in front to reveal chantilly lace peaking out underneath. Finally, for a little surprise element, we made the train inset in a delicate chantilly lace with a striking pattern.
