The back of a wedding dress gets its fair share of attention and therefore should be conceived with this importance in mind. The charm of an artfully designed back lies in the intersection of cut, drape and detail (such as intricate seaming). I connect the back of the dress to the time of day of the wedding.
For morning ceremonies, the back should never fall below the level of the bra fastening and should be adorned with traditional details such as tiny bows or ribbons. For late-day and especially evening weddings, a softer, lower drape and more bare skin is alluring and adornment can include sequins, beads and crystals to reflect light and add glamour.
Remember, a bride’s exit is as noteworthy as her entrance. Choose the back detail of your wedding dress accordingly.

Kendall is one of my Luxe gowns, so it’s very romantic, very delicate. I only do two or three Luxe gowns a season, so the focus is on those extra-special details, from the exquisite laces to the really fine, old world craftsmanship.
The bodice is where you first see this refined sensibility. The strapless, drop-waist corset is covered with very finely micro-pleated French tulle that crosses the bodice in a kind of basketweave pattern, so there’s this contrasting movement to the bodice that gives it a very tonal quality. I also love the...READ MORE
