Gown in Focus… Sophia

With its high waisted skirt, sweetheart neckline and delicate lace detail the ‘Sophia’ gown creates the perfect modern take, on a lovely vintage look.

The bodice has boning to create structure and shape, as well as offer support for the bust, finished with a sweetheart neckline that softens the shoulders. 

The high-waisted, full tulle skirt cinches and emphasises the waist, while the fullness of the circle skirt hides the hips and focuses on flattering the waist and bodice.

The glimmer tulle ruched down the front of the bodice helps to draw the eye to the waist. Along the bustline and down the bodice is sweet French Chantilly lace, mixed with corded lace to create texture, while adding a touch of feminine detail that really catches the eye.

 Layers of glimmer tulle teamed with matte, ivory tulle create a dazzlingly soft shimmering look. Finished with a satin, buckled belt, or a diamante belt*, this is perfect for accentuating the waist.

Like the 'Rebecca' gown we featured in our last 'Gown in Focus' post, a strapless gown, can help to showcase beautifully soft shoulders and decolletage.  However, for brides who are not keen on strapless gowns, the off-the-shoulder tulle piece is perfect.  Sitting just off the shoulders, it adds to the stunning vintage feel of 'Sophia', while tying in nicely with the tulle in the skirt.

'Sophia', complete with its high waisted full tulle skirt, fitted bodice complete with gorgeous lae detail and a sweetheart neckline, has all the elemtns that work to create a perfect take on modern-vintage with a little bit of fairytale princess.
