Vera Wang Katarina Wedding Dress

This one-of-a-kind custom Katarina dress was an absolute dream, airy and light to wear and easy to dance with and now she is looking to make another bride very happy on her wedding day. As written on Vera Wang Website – Behind the Dress – December 28, 2012 (http://www.verawang.com/veraunveiled/2012/12/behind-the-dress-katarina/): Katarina is quintessential romance: a gown for the belle of the ball. Imagine a cascade of ribbons unfurling from a tightly-wound spool, with starry explosions of lace, floating delicately through a luxurious expanse of tulle – this is the sweeping statement that Katarina makes in the most whimsical, playful way possible. A natural waist, strapless corset bodice is appliqued with bits of Chantilly lace – they almost appear to float over the bust cups and the boning, to subtly mask them. It’s a sleek, nipped-in contrast to the gorgeous fullness of the ballgown’s skirt, which is made up of tulle with wavy, horsehair-edged borders in many different widths. At the top of her body, they’re cut very thin, and then towards the bottom, they become wider. Not only is the effect flattering – the bride’s waist looks so sleek and tiny – but it also creates this very dramatic explosion element – a degradé – on the bottom. The horsehair allows the skirt to be really full without the stiffness of crinoline. There’s just this beautiful transparency that just makes you feel like you’re floating on air, as though you’re in a cloud. There are, of course, a few veiled surprises tucked away in the folds of the skirt. In the front, I’ve placed a feathery, supple flange of tiered French tulle in between some of the tulle layers. So when the bride walks, you see just a hint of texture just nestled into the ribbons of horsehair. It’s a way to mix and match an element that is very modern and architectural – those raw edges – with something that is really kind of sweet and fanciful. And then on the back of the gown on the train, you have this explosion of Chantilly lace floating on top of the tulle and horsehair. This is about walking up the aisle and leaving the guests awed by the back of the dress as you proceed. Youthful, fanciful, and overflowing with movement and energy – Katarina is a modern fairy tale kind of dress. Dress will come in original Vera Wang garment bag with wood hangar. Final purchase, no returns. If buyer is located in Toronto, I am willing to meet in person to show you the dress. I am also happy to send additional pictures or video as necessary. (Purchase price is quoted in US dollars – willing to accept Canadian dollars based on prevailing exchange rate.)
