collection: Mon Amour
materials: silk dupioni, silk organza, chantilly lace, horsehair (synthetic)
Three types of french chantilly lace are used in this whimsical confection of translucent layers. The chantilly lace corset-style bodice is boned with ultra-light and strong spiral steel boning (often used in ballet corsets). The skirt consists of two layers of organza cut in an appealing arc and edged with horshair braid for structure and hand-stitched chantilly lace scalloped edged appliques. In the back the layers cascade into a short but voluminous train. A dramatic horsehair bow finishes the look.
