When I get an offer to bring my designs to a place that has actual crystal chandeliers – what do I say?
Why, I’ll be there, with bells on!
As soon as I knew about the chandeliers, and the awesome level of fancy perfection to the location, I decided that gowns featuring my new slit skirts would be the perfect thing to bring. I LOVE how they look in the photo above – lending a very modern hint of saucy seduction to an otherwise historical scene.
And up next, my leather taffeta ballgown! Because leather and taffeta are absolutely meant to be together.
And last, comes my personal favorite gown design for the day, modeled by Tricia Eva Lore.
I’m happy with how I managed to line these shots up to show as much pretty chandelier-age from the ballroom as possible, by using the reflections in the mirror. Tricia’s gown is also available custom made to measure in either white/black (as pictured) and ivory/black, for those who prefer warm over cool colors.
The location and the photoshoot were thanks to Eric Baird of Behind the Lens Photography Workshops. There were quite a few photographers in attendance, and some amazing photos and a fun time were had by all! While there, I was happy to catch some useful photography tips, and learn some great information about lighting setups, and posing, and such.
