Classic meets contemporary in the Everlasting gown. A hand-beaded lace basque style bodice feature a bra internal construction with underwired cups and steel boning for shape. The lace is hand embroidered with pearl and glass beads, while the strapless sweetheart neckline features a raw lace edging. The fitted waistline is enhanced by a silk mikado waistband attached the the full silk mikado skirt – given a modern edge and gently curved silhouette via side front and back pleats and side seam inserted pockets. Frilled net petticoats add fullness. The centre back features Caroline Castigliano’s delicated silk covered buttons and rouleau loops, concealing the classic eyelet fastening.
