How to look unique on your wedding day. Out of this world dress, you will only see something similar to this in a museum.
Straight from the ‘La Belle Epoque’ era - French for “Beautiful Age”. 1910
All the beadwork is original having been mounted onto cotton net, every bead hand sewn down taking a copius amount of hours work.
The silk dress underneath is a couture dress made in pure silk and lined in pure silk, the bodice having structure for fit, then finished with button and loops opening down the centre back for ease of putting on. A sweetheart neckline.
This ‘belle epoque’ dress would grace any catwalk or more importantly a wedding for one very special bride.
A feast for the eyes of period fashion and modernity.

Cocoa Couture was established in Cheltenham in 1970 selling antique textiles. Cara acquired the business in 1990. As well as creating beautiful bespoke wedding gowns and lingerie, Cara also spends hundreds of hours restoring vintage and historical clothing giving them a new lease of life to be enjoyed again.
Her love of antique artworks, fabrics and tapestries from the 17th, 18th and 19th Century has also led her to expand and develop her own range of individual silks and fabrics to create unique historically based clothing and handmade accessories - The Cocoa Treasures Collection. All of the designs are printed locally in the Cotswolds in the heart of the UK on the finest pure silks and softest velvets, lovingly finished by hand.
