The Story Behind the Dress!
As many of you know that when you purchase a new dress, it very rarely fits in all the right places. Hence I was so over doing alterations to almost every dress sold, that there was no time left to make new designs,"there has to be a better way." After a bit of thought, I pulled out two dresses. One was my favourite backless ballgown and the other a wrap around dress. What if I could put the two together. So after some playing around and wrapping my mannequin in metres of satin, we came up with an idea for a dress that requires no alterations except maybe the length of the hem.
Our revolutionary "concept" gown, come in different necklines, skirt shapes and strap types.
