This Austin Scarlett Vivian gown is a show-stopper, and very versatile. The silk faille fabric is thick and sturdy; you are definitely wearing a high-quality couture gown! The color is natural ivory: it is a little warmer than white-white but not yellow at all (cream) so you will not clash with white flowers or say, your groom's white tux/suit shirt. The gown is fully corsetted internally (no lacing-up required, the boning is built-in) meaning that once it's on, it will not budge! It also has both an interior and exterior zip, so you will be extra secure. The neckline is square but with a wonderful architectural crumb-catcher accent that mirrors and compliments the dramatic folds of fabric in the back. The dress is at once both simple and dramatic. It features clean, crisp lines for a modern look using a classic silhouette and luxurious fabric that is truly timeless. It has a chapel train.
Bra cups sewn in to provide structure (non push-up): I am a 34B Gown is tailored for a French bustle (IT LOOKS UNBELIEVABLE BUSTLED--THE FABRIC AND FOLDS LOOP IN AND UNDER EACH OTHER FOR EVEN MORE VOLUME) Gown has a quarter-inch snag on back bottom hemline from someone stepping on it, but it is near-to-invisible. I can send a photo upon request. My drycleaner had to point it out to me; I didn't even notice it. Gown is fully drycleaned and will arrive in original Gabriela Bridal Salon bag. Gabriela's is a boutique high-end salon in NYC.
