There is just something about this dress that I adore. It’s messy in a structured way. It’s modern and vintage at the same time while still being romantic. Leave it to the master to create such an interesting gown. I could see translating this random-yet-refined style into an arresting invitation.

Think about it: layers of different kinds of paper, mixing textures and tones, combining shapes that work together to form a complete package. I’ve got to sketch this one out right away, before the creative spark disappears!

      Hi Emily! It’s by Vera Wang. I’m not sure if it’s custom but the Vera Wang boutique in Boston should be able to help. Good luck!
