I saw a picture of the ‘Gemma’ gown by Vera Wang and knew I had to try it on. It was even more spectacular in real life, I didn’t want to take it off! The beautiful mermaid style gown not only fits your curves and creates beautiful lines, it has all the drama of a ball gown down below. The train is also absolutely stunning!
If you want something that is classic, romantic and a little bit sexy this dress is just that. You certainly can’t go wrong with Vera!
A bit about the dress from Vera herself:
There are so many beautiful aspects to the Gemma gown. Perhaps the most otherworldly element is the ethereal combination of French tulle and organza, something you wouldn’t expect in a gown with such a defined mermaid silhouette. We used bands of tulle, wrapping around the body like a swirling cyclone, and ending in bias-cut flanges, which are deconstructed, abstract blossoms in tissue organza: it’s the perfect storm. Inside these rosettes I’ve added what I call “blizzard beading”: hundreds of tiny little sequins scattered all around. Once the dress is in motion, you get the thrill of that subtle play between lights and darks, but in the form of rosy, feminine blooms. It’s an absolute celebration of volume that is meant to be very dramatic, with the fantasy of a ball gown and the sensuousness of a mermaid gown combined. Gemma is one of my more glamorous dresses, giving the bride something slender and sleek up top, and at the bottom the flash and splash of sequins and dynamic volume, for the ultimate wedding day spectacle.
Purchased from the Vera Wang store in Sydney, the dress was worn at my wedding on the 22nd November 2014.
It has been altered in at the waist and bust and a bustle was also added by Joanna at Sew Special who is recommended by Vera Wang Sydney. All alterations can be re-altered to suit your body. The length from top (bust) to bottom (where it first hits the floor so not including the train) is 127cms. I am 163cms tall and wore 11cm heels on the day.
The dress has been professionally dry cleaned by Bridal Silver Service who is also recommended by Vera Wang Sydney and is as new with no stains or visible marks on the dress.
If you would like to try the dress on please feel free to contact me to arrange a time.
Included: Professionally dry cleaned gown, ivory blizzard beading (catches the light beautifully), Vera Wang garment bag and the certificate of authenticity.
