Absolutely not your average wedding dress this one! I has such an incredible day is this fairtale gown!
The Ascention gown features a stunning fully boned corset with softly folded pleat overlay at the bust, continuing down to an edgy torso cut-out under the bust. Clever design means that this gown can accommodate a strapless bra or adhesive bra cups with ease. The bodice is pristinely tailored and has an exposed metal zipper at the centre back with locking zip (so it doesn't come undone on you!) The edgy chunky metal zipper puller is another fun addition to the cool features of this design
The full skirt is ankle length at the centre front and scoops around to the back to create a slightly longer train and sides- see images for the beautiful cascading effect this creates at the side of the hem
Also featuring POCKETS!!!! seriously chic addition to an already super stylish gown- pop your tissues and your lipstick in your pocket and you're off! The skirt of the dress: features not only pockets at the front but lovely soft pleats across the pockets, flowing through to flattering knife pleats over the bottom/mid-back- let me know if you need more photos of these details- I have popped a few in the listing in the hope of accurately showing this detail There is fine Nylon tulle (netting) to create fullness in the skirt as well as a wide hem crinoline band- this crinoline band creates the stiff wide "hem" look at the hem of the gown and makes for a crisp edge to the bottom of the gown
Lining and inner: the lining is silk so you don't feel any of the prickly tulle of the skirt and the fabric feels soft and luxurious on the skin. The high quality make and construction of this garment mean that when fitted properly, the corset feels like a snug little extension of yourself and I didn't find myself feeling the need to pull it up or have to adjust it much during the day of our wedding- I don't think it looks nice to see the bride fidgeting with her dress on her wedding day so this was important to me!
The Main fabric: is a wonderful textured Rayon- this was one of the first things that attracted me to this style- the interesting fabrication and the chic fabric choice in regards to a wedding gown. Soft and comfortable whilst making a very chic statement- I just loved wearing it!
I bought this stunning gown off the rack at Harrods in London in Januray 2017 and have made no alterations to it Naturally, while it was worn on my wedding day it did pick up some dirt around the hem and 99% or this came out during drycleaning however there is still very faint staining at the hem at the side of the gown (this is not only hard to see when the gown is laid out flat, it is even harder to see when the folds of the gown fall back over themselves when on the body) I am more than happy to send photos of these areas as requested
Happy shopping! xx Linda
