The sleeveless gown is a signature for me as it is timeless, chic and sophisticated while also practical for dancing.
If you choose sleeves, remember the proportion of the armhole will impact the construction of the sleeve and the range of your movement. Most importantly, choose something you feel comfortable and confident in. -XO, Vera

As it winds asymmetrically down the dress, interacting with the bride's own silhouette, it sets off that visual contrast with the simple, body-inspired sheer texture of the bodice. I wanted to really draw this contrast between the layers of tulle and the drama in the pleats and the skirt, and the bodice's clean surface...READ MORE
