New, never worn, with tags, not altered, in gown bag, Vera Wang Oriana wedding gown size 8. Can be worn for wedding of most levels of formality - full black tie, to a more simple garden wedding. I absolutely adore this dress, and only changed to another because the venue and details of my wedding changed. I can't wait for this dress to become someone's dream wedding dress!
Ivory and nude tulle A-line gown with lace trim detailing on bodice and skirt.
Every dress is my Spring collection plays with a tension between elements that are both delicate and disciplined --- like whispers of fine French tulle combined with just a subtle hint of architectural structure. It's a way to create a bohemian gown that still possesses a classic bridal sweetness. Oriana really exemplifies this sensibility. The dress is such a romantic blend of sexy lingerie elements mixed with sophisticated goddess gown draping --- think Grecian gone wild.
There's very little structure to this gown, which is what makes the bride seem so free-spirited when she wears it. It's an unfussy sheath construction, with just a simple camisole-style V-neck top with barely-there straps in draped French tulle, with an angelic A-line skirt made from sheer layers of French tulle and chiffon. The straps of the top consist of pieces of Chantilly lace that crisscross in the back and front. It's almost like a harness, though the straps function more as decoration rather than as structural supports. What I love, though, is the architectural the way that the lines bisect the bodice and the back. The delicate quality of the straps also reminds me of a ballerina's camisole. Even though it's cut low, there's sheer tulle all around your bust so you don't see cleavage --- it's still very modest. All of this tulle is very delicate, though, so it still gives the impression of being sheer through the bodice. Oriana is very sexy and innocent at the same time.
Oriana also has a really sensual, low back that comes to the base of her spine and hits right at the natural waist, encircled by a band of Chantilly lace. It connects to a beautifully draped skirt cut with very wide with layers of chiffon and French tulle, all layered on top of each other. It has such an elegant sense of movement, and really can open up to feel very full --- so dreamy and angelic. There's also just a touch of Chantilly lace running the length of skirt. It's completely veiled and hidden by the layers of tulle --- one of my favorite techniques --- and just peeks through every now and then, little subtle whispers of lace.
With that romantic swish of tulle and unstructured shape, Oriana is the kind of dress I picture on a very bohemian bride, kicking up the heels of her cowboy boots during an exuberant session on the dance floor. Oriana captures the spirit of youth, freedom and old-fashioned romance all at once!
