You might have just found "the one". This beautiful Suzanne Harward dress is perfect. Suzanne Harward is a pioneer of Australian bridal fashion designing fashion-forward couture gowns which have been handmade in Melbourne, Australia since 1975. This dress is from her 2016 Neo Victorian collection.
The shape is feminine, timeless and flattering. It is composed of Ivory Regalia lace with double plunge neckline and a front centre split and lined with pure silk. I am a standard size 10 when buying off the rack. This dress is a size 12. No alterations have been made.
The dress features a modern white lace over a nude/bone coloured silk underlay. The front centre split will make a dramatic and elegant entrance followed by a beautiful long train of lace as you walk down the aisle. The plunging V at the front & back of the dress features a very sheer, near invisible layer of fabric in between it to hold the shape and hold you in. The silhouette is so flattering and the dress itself is very comfortable. It is a dream to wear all day long. There is a small button on the back seam of the dress with a loop so you can hook the gorgeous train up as you dance the night away.
The dress has been dry-cleaned and boxed up by Melbourne's best dry cleaners in Armadale. It is in excellent condition, no stains or tears. It's a beautiful dress, I will be sad to see it go, but it will be lovely that someone else gets to wear this Melbourne made creation for their big day.
