I absolutely loved getting to know Sunelle and her mother during her fittings. A relationship like theirs makes for a precious picture of what I hope to one day share with my own daughter.

Petite, pretty and incredibly stylish, Sunelle decided on an elegant, uncluttered design with clean geometric lines devoid of drama and frills.

The front of her top was fashioned in the form of a boat-neck and descended into a provocative low cut back. Structured sleeves with a beaded motif extended along the side of her bodice, adding additional glitz to her otherwise understated gown. Her close-fitting skirt hugged her silhouette and in crescendo, ended in a lovely long train.

Super chic and timeless, Sunelle exemplified a 1950’s silver screen icon: beautiful, graceful, sophisticated and sleek.
