Rebecca + Rabbit
Rebecca rolls to the beat of a different drum. Literally. She is a roller derby gal and wears roller skates whenever earthly possible. So when she rolled into my studio for her wedding dress I knew we were going to have some fun. Her Salt:Wedding mood board was filled with lush greens, traditional “new look” silhouettes, and tea length gowns. She wanted something that would spin and be fun, different, and most importantly not predominantly white.
Because of all the colors of green on her boards we decided that the dress would also have to mimic that. Rather than doing a traditional ombré we wanted to play with the different levels of hemlines. Three-inch horsehair braid on the 8 layers of skirt gave the dress bounce, lift, and a certain frivolity that Rebecca really wanted. We topped off the outfit with a 110-cashmere wool-suiting bolero with an asymmetrical cowl-neck wrap with antique button.
