The Dress

This couture wedding dress was designed and hand made by Suzanne Harward.

I bought it here on Still White in June 2016, and I absolutely love it. However, since then I've found a dress that I love even more, so I'm (sadly) listing it here so that another bride can wear it on her big day.

It has been professionally dry cleaned and comes with the original Suzanne Harward bag.

*** Please note that:
- The professional photos included here are from the original bride's wedding; they are not photos of me. However she has kindly allowed me to use them in my listing. The other photos were taken in my house.
- This dress has only been worn ONCE at the original bride's wedding. I have tried it on just twice in my home (without makeup, body lotion etc.) and so it is in perfect second hand condition.

Suzanne Harward is a pioneer of Australian bridal fashion, designing fashion-forward coutour gowns, handmade in Melbourne, since 1975. This dress is from the Golden Era Capsule Collection. It has a beautiful round boat neck line and flattering capped sleeves. The back is scooped halfway down and the dress is fitted at the waist. It has a small train which can be bustled for the reception and which has a small ribbon to carry on your finger to protect it from the ground after the wedding.

This dress is so elegant and extremely comfortable too - the cap sleeves allow the bodice and backless portion to sit well. It feels very classic yet modern at the same time, and the sequins change colour with the light so beautifully. I would say the dress looks bright white in direct sunlight, and a gorgeous ivory in softer light.

The dress is nice and long and measures approx. 120cm from the belt to the front hem. I am 173cm tall and I wore 10cm heels when trying it on. The bride in the professional photos included here is 174cm and wore 8cm heels.

My measurements (which fit the dress perfectly):

Bust: 86cm (I wear a 10D in Australasian bra brands)
Waist: 68cm
High Hip: 89cm (i.e. measurement around my body in line with my hip bones)
Seat: 99cm (i.e. fullest part of bottom)
My height: 173cm

I’m selling for $2,500 NZD.

Please see link to Still White blog on the right - this blog showcases the dress beautifully as worn by the lovely bride I bought it from.
