Beautiful, strapless, mermaid silhouette dress. Detachable straps were included, I didn’t use them, but instead made a headpiece out of them. There is a second headpiece available, but all it needs is for the fabric to be sown to the hair clip.
Inside the bodice, there is a built in lace up corset, followed by a zip then buttons to close the bodice. The fit felt very secure.
The dress was purchased from the Raffaele Ciuca Armadale store for my wedding in October 2016.
I have drycleaned this dress at Syndals Bridal Drycleaners in December 2016, and even purchased a full length preservation bag made from acid free imported fabric and lined with acid free paper.
I have taken very good care of this dress as I love it so much, and I believe the next owner will not be disappointed.
The following advertisement appeared on the Raffaele Ciuca website:
“Exquisite beaded embroidered lace on tulle drapes over delustered satin in this fit and flare gown featuring dazzling Swarovski crystals in the neckline and shoulder straps. Complete with scoop neckline and finished with crystal button and zipper inner corset closure”.
RRP $4200 but selling for $2500
Additional items included:
- 2x headpieces
- Fingertip length plain veil (partly detached from hairclip, needs to be sown on)
