Dress Charlotte ~ Spring / Summer 2020 The Parisian Collection Final Dress in Natural Silk – Size 12 – Steamed and Ready

The Charlotte dress is ready for customer try-ons, is steamed, hanging up and looking gorgeous. This dress has been sewed up over some time; step by step with some hand work too. I am really happy with the outcome and I think the fit and feel to it will make a happy bride. The inspiration for this dress was taken from a Paris visit and in seeing the street iron work, especially that of the Art Nouveau entrance and exit gates of the metro line there, the dress also references historic design such as the 1920’s silhouette and is meant to frame the ladies figure elegantly for that big day.

The Charlotte Dress Spring / Summer 2020


Its features are slim silk straps which go onto a small asymmetrical bodice which is fitted with a boned corset underneath, an elegant empire line which is decorated with silk cord, a pleated a line skirt portion which falls from there over the hips and to the floor in silk and rayon fabric, a shaped back bodice with a tie up laced back, an empire line and pleated skirt portion which stops at floor level with a crisp hemline, all in natural silk and feels so beautiful to touch and wear.

The dress is in keeping with the brand ethos being made in the UK, made with natural silks, and being an ethically friendly company in its business practices. The style of all my dresses are contemporary, classic, edgy, feminine and elegant. I like to focus on the way the garment would make one feel and look, being careful in how they are designed and using a careful selection of fabrics to achieve this.

I have a collection of dresses available soon for try-ons, made in average women’s sizes, if you find something you like but it doesn’t fit, I have an onsite tailoring service for baseline adjustments and more complicated fittings need to be made –  I can make referrals.
