This exquisite dress is for the non-traditional bride who wants something truly extraordinary. Customized and purchased from J.Mendel's flagship store on Madison Ave New York, this dress is a custom version of the gun-metal contour gown from the 2013-2014 collection (see original dress in image gallery).
This gown is a beautiful example of J. Mendel's signature architectural construction and sleek silhouette. The pale gold metallic wool-silk fabric has weight and flow and feels extraordinary on the body. The highly emphasized bodice and articulated seams offer a point of difference and draw the eye to the most flattering parts of the silhouette.
This dress was custom made for me and was not released as part of the larger J Mendel collection.
There is an invisible zip on the back of the dress. The train has internal ties so you can shorten the dress if required.
Colour: Ivory fabric with fine gold thread, giving an overall pale gold shimmery effect.
Fabric: 54% wool, 34% silk, 12% polyethylene gold thread. 100% silk lining
Bodice: full internal bodice with bra-strap clasps. I did not wear a bra with this dress, just inserted chicken fillets for a little more fullness (I wear a 12 C bra size).
Condition: Outstanding condition with no marks. Has been professionally dry cleaned and stored in a cardboard Bridal Chest with acid-free tissue. Will be shipped in the Bridal Chest, gown bag included.
