Inspired by Wine harvesting, the deep grape-coloured satin flows like wine, cascading over the female form, softened with organza 'leafy' flounces & embellished with glass-jewel grapes. Using 'up-cycled' fabric to promote renewing & recycling. This gown is an entrant in the McLaren Vale Harvest Festival, Jan 2012. Stay tuned to see if it is accepted in the exhibit!
The fashion shoot was above & beyond my imagination, everyone worked so well together to achieve the desired outcome, it was very amazing to watch it all unfold. A note of gratitude also to Woodstock Wine Estate for allowing us to shoot on location in their vineyard, it completed the garment & I am so grateful.
