Hera Couture, Snow Lotus gown by NZ designer Katie Yeung.
This dress was purchased late 2016 and has NEVER BEEN WORN as I have chosen a completely different style of dress to wear instead. I still absolutely love this dress and dearly hope it will make another bride's dream.
The dress has only just come to Australia and is still in the new range in Melbourne Bridal stores for $AUD $2900. The dress was purchased in NZ, I also paid $400 for alterations plus a simple long tulle veil which I will include.
Alterations: I had the back of the dress lowered so that it has a deeper V back (almost to the waist). I also added a split in the front, which opens as you move and in the breeze. the split is over the right leg which is simply gorgeous. Otherwise the actual fit of the dress, bodice and length have not been altered.
It is off the rack size 10.
The dress is light and so lovely to wear, with a dreamy flowy skirt, with a tiny loop to allow you to bustle the skirt.
I am an Australian size 8 - 10, C cup bust, however I was a little bigger when I purchased the dress, so a small size 12 may also fit. I am 168cm tall, and in the photos am wearing 4" heels, Bust approx. 35-37", Waist approx. 30 - 32"
Sorry i don't have better photos but it hasn't been worn in a wedding so that is all I have, I don't want to risk it getting dirty by taking it out of it's bag for photos. But if you need more photos and are genuinely interested please let me know.
It has not been dry-cleaned as it hasn't been worn : )
"This dress is all about delicate detailing – without being over the top. The detailing is subtle: slightly translucent Venetian brocade lace is scattered with hand cut petals over the translucent bodice and waist. The bodice has a V-neck at the front, and deeper V at the back, with extra lining around the bust – giving great support, even for larger busts. An A-line skirt is made of flowing layers of quality rayon Georgette crepe, with a sweep train. It sits on your natural waistline and flows out into a wide skirt, making this dress incredibly flattering over the hips and bottom, and easy to wear."
