1. Minette could not visualize herself clothed in a classic white wedding dress.
  2. Her nuptials were to take place within the winter-tide, with glacial weather conditions and impending showers.

I just love winter weddings! Palettes of reds and burgundy, greens, greys and gold. Rich textures, fuller fabrics and fur.

For Minette’s dress I fashioned a dove grey gown with a beautiful embroiled bodice – accentuated by beading on the back and neckline, with full sheer sleeves. It appeared she stepped straight out of a Cinderella scene.
