Rose Themed Wedding Dress Showcase

vivat veritas flower petal wedding dressBack in June, I hosted a three-day event where I showcased three of my new wedding dress designs. It was done in collaboration with a flower shop, AFRIKA ROSE and another bridal gown designer, Satomi Shiga of Rachel Bridal. Satomi and I met last year and we had been entertaining the idea of hosting an event together. Then we came across a flower shop that specializes in roses that are made in Kenya. We pitched the event idea of the event to the owner and she readily agreed.

We had about six months to put the event together and it was a success! We had a cocktail reception on the first night and the place was packed.

She attached each petal with glue gun.

The mermaid style dress below is made out rose motif lace. It was inspired by the client work I did recently, which was similar in style. I love mermaid dresses and my own wedding dress was mermaid, but people don’t go for this style often in Japan.vivat veritas mermaid wedding dressI made this second dress thinking of rose petals. Wanted to express the gradation and color change happening in petals, so I made a skirt in silk and ombre dyed with chemical dye. I used DYLON flamingo pink. I dyed bottom half with very watery paint first, let it dry, and did the same for two more times with thicker dye paint. The result was pretty good; I was really happy with how it came out.
