THE RUSSIAN PRINCESS STORY


THE RUSSIAN PRINCESS
A story about a dreamy wedding dress

One day , i received an email from a young lady , Irina , asking if it was possible for me to create her wedding dress ….


I'm passionated about Russian traditional costumes from the past . Especially the 19th Century .
When I understood Irina is from Russia , I proposed to her to create a dress with Russian influence from this period .






I proposed my view , only with words , because never I draw . She trusted me .






THE RUSSIAN PRINCESS MATERIALS
Vintage silk sari ( we don't see it , it is the base dress )
Vintage richelieu laces , early 20th Century , dyed with tea .


Tulle dyed with tea
Antique metallic lace from the 19th century



When she received " The Russian Princess " she wrote me a marvelous appreciation , that gave me many emotional tears ! :

" I even was not able to imagine before, that it could be so...magic. I'm breathing like a girl who is in love for the first time ...she changes me, enforce to feel acient archetypes inside, makes me a real princess from the many many centuries ago..I can not speak much, I'm too impressed, but I feel it like a part of me which changes myself and I feel like I've found my 'true' personality. "






Thank you Irina to give to me the opportunity to create this dream
