THE VAUGHANS

Powerhouse duo, Emma and Keir set a date to be married, and as incredibly talented aesthetes in their field as interior and communication designers respectively, their vision for their outfits was nothing short of dreamy. Enlisted to design and make Emma's dress, I drew on 30s and 40s lingerie for inspiration, with a geometric heart-shaped bodice, realised in an overwhelming number of hand tacked silk georgette pleats. My experience as a vintage clothing restorer for film and theatre informed the haute couture construction techniques used, the 100% silk fabrication and the timeless silhouette.
