I was doing research for a client wanting a lace adorned/1930s tea gown look for her wedding when I came across a few old clippings I'd stashed for inspiration.  These are from design duo Badgley Mishka.  Still relative newcomers to the bridal  scene back then, these ads and editorial clip from Martha Stewart Weddings show their purity and discrimination for excellence.  These gowns are a case in point of what happens when love of fashion history meets perfect fit and fabrication.
