“Water Flowers” Wedding Dress
Cotton and silk dress with pearls and beads
In the stillness of the afternoon, ripples gently lap against the mossy riverbank. It’s a rare sense of quiet - delicate and relaxed - only interrupted by the occasional airy laugh as she looks up from her book. You are no longer sure if you’ve been here for a minute or an eternity, afloat with her. Protected by the weeping willows and napping in the mottled sunlight, you feel as if you are caught in time, frozen in the most beautiful moment. Time passes easily here.
Our “Water Flowers” collection evokes a sense of easy romance, with soft colors, lovely draping fabrics and flattering silhouettes. When designing this collection we looked to Elivish imagery and medieval clothing, as well as the grace of water lilies, mythology, and Art Nouveau concepts. We created all of the dresses to inspire the wearer to walk along mossy riverbanks with their true love, float on a peaceful lake on a lazy afternoon, or enjoy the shade of a beautiful old tree.
This dress has been crafted with weddings in mind. Medieval in inspiration, it has a wide scooped neckline at the front which is still modest, a fitted bodice embellished with pleats, beading, and faux pearls, and short trimmed top sleeves that give way to amazingly graceful wing-like bell sleeves. The sides of the dress have lacing rings that allow you to get a perfectly comfortable fit that makes you feel confident (and, if need be, adjusted after a feast!). It has a floor-length skirt that flows ground, given more volume with extra gores to make it 8-9 meters in circle length at the hemline!
The body of the dress is made from either white or light blue cotton poplin, which is thinner and softer than our usual structured cotton. We picked this material specifically because of how amazing it looks when worked into pleats, which allows it to have a stunning drape and movement. The sleeves of the dress are made from natural silk chiffon which makes them very light and likely to dance in the breeze, and the seams along the arms are connected with beautiful pearls, giving them a sense of opulence.
Our wedding dress is absolutely full of fine details - every time you look at it, you’ll notice something even more amazing! You will find trim perfectly gathered along the scooped neckline as well as the bottom hem and top of the sleeves. The trim has been further embellished the neckline and sleeves with a line of faux pearls, and every single pleat on the bodice is finished with dozens of little beads. The trim itself is custom-designed and exclusive to ArmStreet, made by our talented graphic designers after hours of research into the graceful shapes of waterlilies, lake flowers and Art Nouveau motifs.
This dress has been designed with all of the thought and luxury of a wedding dress. It is made to look medieval in the sense that it can blend into a variety of different time periods, but also feel comfortable and have the construction of a more modern garment. It features expert sewing techniques throughout that have been honed over a lifetime: strong seams, professionally hand-sewn beads, and pearls, and second-to-none finishing, especially on the gorgeous silk sleeves which look like they’ve been hemmed with moonlight. While this dress is indeed beautiful, the construction and craftsmanship truly make it a work of art.
