Very Ooh La La !!
Wedding Dress using an original 1910 piece of beadwork beaded dress for the skirt which is silk velvet, then hand beaded. This is an extreemly rare piece and very heavy.
The dress is a couture dress made by Cocoa Couture, a fitted body that is moulded to your shape, with original diamonte crystals appliqued onto the front bodice.
Centre back opening with silk buttons and loops. The skirt is in silk georgette that flute’s out from the stunning beadwork at the centre back.
A true one off for the bride that really does want to look different.
Waist to hem front 40"
Waist to small train hem 58.5"
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.
