Florence Gown

 The Florence Gown in a nude silk chiffon from Italy with a full lace overlay in an amazing Chantilly from Sophie Hallette, France. The matching cathedral drop veil and bodice detail is achieved using the appliqué technique and is entirely hand sewn in our Russian Hill Atelier.

Process detail of the lace appliqué for the Florence gown using the famous lace from Sophie Hallette, worn by Marilyn Monroe to the opening of "How to Marry a Millionaire" and Amal Clooney's wedding dress and veil. I've used this lace for a number of couture clients and have loved the unique Art Nouveau influence in the floral pattern.
