I've always have a thing for Vera Wang wedding gowns cos they are really unique with certain signature details that are truly hers. I know however, I can never afford a real Vera Wang! So as I decided to explore the possibilities to make a gown, I naturally checked out her website first for inspirations. Unsurprisingly I was really excited to see so many super unique gowns in her website! And then I stumbled upon this in her Spring 2012 collections...
|The jaw-dropping 'Harlow' gown.|
It caught my eyes because of it's cool and stand-out train. I've always wanted my gown to have a nice long train that people could pay attention to when I march into the banquet hall or church. And this one really gives me the 'grand' that I wanted in a grand entrance.
I seriously had goosebumps when I received the draft from Erin!!!
I'm also quite glad that I changed the colour a bit cos it gives the gown a romantic-dreamy feel instead of dark and sad. I also feel the colour makes the gown looks 'younger'. It might not look super impressive in real, but the effects on photos are really so beautiful!!!
|Pre-wedding photos showcased my beautiful gown with the pretty details at the back!!!|
After wearing it trice - for pre-wedding photoshoot, wedding in KL and in Taiping, I still honestly love the gown heaps. But now that I've dry-cleaned it and hung it in my wardrobe, it has come to no use anymore. Hence, I'm ready to let it go.

|Just so you can have a look at the details at the top of the gown.|
1) Heart shape top
2) Low waist design
3) Can Can design (although no can can used) with 5 layers of materials
4) Materials are mix of soft tulle, organza and satin
5) Light grey with soft pink details
6) Train length: 70cm
7) Detachable flowy soft tulle included at the top back of the gown
8) Absolutely perfect for photoshoot and march-ins
9) Asking price: RM900
Here's the catch... Because the gown comes with a side zipper on a soft tulle, if alteration is made to widen there may be stitch holes seen on the gown. So it is preferably that you are smaller than me or at least same size as I am, which is around a UK8-10 (please e-mail for exact measurement). But of course if you are from a bridal house I don't see size as a problem as you may use it for only photoshoot so small stitch holes are not too bad and you could actually convert it into corset closure.
So if you or somebody you know is interested, kindly please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall see how we can arrange things from there on. :)
