Designer Monday

This week  we are featuring a wonderful designer, whom I found on Etsy, of course, Dress to Empress.

She specializes in couture gowns and all types of accessories.   I was especially drawn to the bridal shrug, a great addition to ANY bride’s wardrobe.  It can be worn as an added layer of comfort in the event a bride doesn’t want to expose their arms or even if the weather is a little chilly.  I am drooling over these precious accessories that are sure to make any bride look AMAZING.

Dress to Empress specializes in creating vintage inspired original fashion designs and accessories. Inspired by eras where glamour was at it’s peek I incorporate elements of the past into my designs with contemporary twist for modern take on the beauty of days gone by.

Jessica was looking for a distinctive shrug design to compliment her fabulous gown as well as her fantastical Tim Burton wedding theme. Her custom design shrug is a darling piece featuring a elegant, pleat collar in layers of softest chiffon and lace. This fanciful piece is finished off with 3/4 princess cut sleeves with additional pleated trim detail. Created from black silk dupioni, hand pleated lace and chiffon.

Please stop by Dress to Empress and see all of her lovely creations.
