Meet LYDIA. Actually, those following this blog have seen the LYDIA gown in the recent Hair Art and Smalll Veils for Fashionistas posts last month. Now it's time to meet LYDIA up close and personal.
For me, embossed chiffon is one of the most luxurious fabrics for its draping and floating capabilities. Here I've lined it in silk crepe to make it move like it's part of the bride's skin. The back drape is made out of silk gauze, a fabric so light, (even lighter than chiffon) it practically floats. Dappled here and there on the drape are small silk flowers.

Where I got inspiration for this one is a no-brainer. 1930s Hollywood is my biggest muse and will continue to amuse me as long as they keep all those old movies restored.

You can see more of Lydia and all the new 2008-2009 collection by checking out my website, Amy-Jo Tatum Bridal Couture (But most of the gallery is under construction, sorry for the mess)

Really pretty gown! Perfect for a more sophisticated bride. I love the old movies too and the fashions were so incredible! Glad to see some of those trends coming back.

Delicate veil and sophisticated details of the same or different materials complement the clothes in an impressive outfit.
